Coffea Arabica is the earliest cultivated species of the coffee tree and still the most widely grown. All fine specialty coffees and our Coffee Essential Oil come from Coffea Arabica, which produce approximately 70% of the world’s coffee, and are dramatically superior in quality to the other principal commercial coffee species. All the coffee now grown in the Americas originated from one tree in a Dutch botanical garden. Among other possibilities, it is thought that the name ‘coffee’ comes from Caffa, an Abyssinian province. It can be burned like incense as a room deodorizer, and is known to be loaded with flavonoids and antioxidants. Coffee Essential oil is most commonly used for cellulite treatment, energizing the body and mind, improving respiration, and soothing aching muscles.
