Coffee (Coffea arabica)
Coffea arabica is a species of coffee originally indigenous to the mountains of Yemen in the Arabian Peninsula, hence its name, and also from the southwestern highlands of Ethiopia and southeastern Sudan. It is also known as the "coffee shrub of Arabia", "mountain coffee" or "arabica coffee".
Coffea arabica is believed to be the first species of coffee to be cultivated, being grown in southwest Arabia for well over 1,000 years. It is considered to produce better coffee than the other major commercially grown coffee species, Coffea canephora (robusta).
Arabica contains less caffeine than any other commercially cultivated species of coffee. Coffee is high in antioxidants and caffeine which are beneficial to the skin. It helps reduce fine lines, acne and other skin conditions, helps improve the appearance of cellulite.
