Coffee Facts – The Different Types of Coffee Beans

  • Posted on September 6, 2017 at 5:15 pm

All over the world, people drink coffee from basically one of two types of coffee beans: Arabica beans (“Coffea Arabica”) and Robusta beans (“Coffea Robusta”)

Arabica beans are aromatic, flavorful coffee beans used for gourmet, specialty coffees. The term refers to Coffea Arabica, the taxonomic species named for the genus responsible for about 75% of the world’s commercial coffee crop. Coffea Arabica is a woody perennial evergreen that belongs to same family as Gardenias.

Robusta beans contain twice the caffeine as Arabicas. Robusta beans are somewhat bitter and lack the flavor and aroma of Arabica beans. Robusta beans are used to produce blends, instant and freeze dried coffees.

There are other types of coffee species but they are very rare or non-existent in the export market. As a result, the fact is that we all drink either Arabica or Robusta coffee. Sounds simple, right? Not quite.

There are many “varietals” within Arabica coffee trees which yield coffee beans with distinct flavors and characteristics. This is where the fun begins. To name a few,

ETHIOPIAN COFFEE: Ethiopian Harrar, Sidamo and Yirgacheffe. Each is named after their region of origin and they have very distinct flavor characteristics. For example, Ethiopian Harrar is known for its medium body, earthy flavor, almost no acidity and a very smooth mouth feel. This is a complex coffee with light spicy tones and a fruity flavor that some people compare to the taste of dry red wine. As the ‘birthplace of coffee,” Ethiopia has a unique place in the coffee world.

KENYAN COFFEE: Kenyan AA. This coffee comes from the area surrounding Mount Kenya, a region with fertile red volcanic soil. The coffee is known for its very acidic taste you taste right away in the mouth, and then followed by a medium body with an aftertaste of earthy flavor.

TANZANIAN COFFEE: Tanzanian Peaberry focuses on pea berry instead of traditional coffee beans. Coffee is the dried seed from the fruit of a flowering tree. Each fruit has two seeds facing each other. On the coffee tree, there is a percentage of the fruit that has a single seed or peaberry and the rest will have two flat beans for the usual two (2) seeds per fruit. The single bean peaberry occurs in less than 5% of any crop and is generally considered to produce a more concentrated flavor.

COLOMBIAN COFFEE: major cultivars of Arabica beans include Bourbon, Caturra, Maragogype and Typica. Colombian coffees also include the name of the growing regions such as Cauca, Nariño, Amazonas, Bucaramanga, etc. Colombia accounts for more than a tenth of the world’s entire coffee supply. Colombian Arabica coffee is perhaps the most well-known, partly due to its “living” and successful coffee advertising iconic symbols recognized worldwide, Juan Valdez and Conchita, the mule. The more generic Colombian coffees are rated as Excelso and Supremo. These terms simply refer to the size of the coffee beans, not necessarily to better coffee grades.

COSTA RICAN COFFEE: Costa Rican Tarrazu is a prized Arabica coffee. It is named after the San Marcos de Tarrazu valley, one of the four premium coffee growing districts surrounding the capital city of San Jose. The other varietals include Tres Rios, Heredia and Alajuela. Costa Rican coffees are balanced, clean, with bright acidity featuring citrus or berry-like flavors and hints of chocolate and spice in the finish.

BRAZILIAN COFFEE: Brazil Santos Bourbon comes from the hills of Sào Paulo state in the south-central portion of the country near the port of Santos. Historically, these Arabica coffee plants were brought to the island of Bourbon now known as the Island of Reunion. Brazil Santos Bourbon is a light bodied coffee, with low acidity, a pleasing aroma and a mild, smooth flavor.

INDONESIAN COFFEE: Java is the most famous Arabica varietal from the island of Java. The top grade of Java coffee is cultivated on former Dutch plantations and is called Java Estate. This is a clean, thick, full body coffee with less of the earthy characteristics that other Indonesia coffees feature, such as Sumatra or Sulawesi. The Java coffees provide a smooth complement to the Yemen Mocha which is very intense. The traditional Mocha Java blend is the combination of Java and Yemen Mocha.

SUMATRAN COFFEE: Sumatra Mandheling and Sumatra Lintong. Sumatra Lintong originates in the Lintong district of Sumatra near Lake Toba. This coffee has a medium, bodied coffee, low acid, sweet with a complex and earthy aroma. Sumatra Mandheling has a rich, heavy body, subdued acidity and unique complex flavor. This coffee actually does not originate in the Mandheling region but is named after the Mandailing people in the north of Sumatra.

HAWAIIAN COFFEE: closer to home, in Hawaii, the best known Arabica varietal is Hawaiian Kona coffee. This Arabica bean grows on the slopes of Mount Hualalai and Mauna Loa which makes it not only exclusive to Hawaii but also to the Kona District specifically.

JAMAICAN COFFEE: the Arabica varietal that grows predominantly in the Blue Mountain region of this island is called Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. The Blue Mountains stretch between Kingston and Port Maria in Jamaica. This region enjoys a cool and misty climate. Due to its limited production quantity, Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is expensive.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA COFFEE: located just north of Australia, Papua New Guinea coffee cultivation was started in 1937 using imported seeds from Jamaica’s famous Blue Mountain region. As a result, Papua New Guinea has noticeable similarities to Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. The rich volcanic soil and excellent climate produce a mild and mellow, full-bodied coffee with moderate acidity, broad flavor and very interesting aromatics.

Is this all? No, there are many more varietals, brands, and special flavors of Arabica coffee to try and discover.

For now, what about a cup of Ethiopian Harrar or Papua New Guinea coffee?

Hardware Keylogger – Helping You To Monitor PC Users Without Being Detected

  • Posted on September 6, 2017 at 2:29 pm

Sue has been the most commited employee. She is always at her duty post doing what she was being paid to do. With all the zeal and industry being exhibited by Sue and most of her colleagues, the company couldn’t explain why productivity was taking a steady and speedy decline until a consultant detective was hired.

Investigations revealed that Sue spends 70% of her -work’ sessions in dating chat rooms. Other times, she was emailing her pals and reading internet news – oh she loved the -fashion and style’ segments!

Worse case for Steve who was discovered to be trading the company’s sensitive information’s to a rival group.

How were these discoveries made since these people work alone in their closets and never share their computers?

Hardware keyloggers to the rescue!

keylogger are devices that are used to monitor the activities on a computer. It works by tracking the keystrokes, recording conversations, tracking the creation of documents and monitoring emails. This is usually achieved when a hardware circuit is attached somewhere in between the computer keyboard and the computer. They are designed in such a way that they blend with the rest of the computer cabling.

How they work

They basically interrupt the keystrokes signals and stores them away. The storage can range from 2MB, which is enough for one – week use, and up to 2GB of flash memory. Ideally, these memories can only be accessed by the individual that installed the device.

To access these memories the installer presses a combination of keys which switches the device from a keystroke-capturing mode to a usb flashdrive mode. Then you receive a message which tells you that a new usb disc drive has been located, and there you will find the keystroke logs that were collected. You also see a configuration file which you can modify in order to change the secret access key.

Hardware Keylogger are now preferred to software keyloggers. The latter can be easily detected by software scanners, and their operations are limited to a single computer. They are also dedicated to only one type of operating system which could be Windows, Mac OS, Linux, etc unlike the hardware equivalents which are operating system – independent, and whose operations, recording and playback, can be done on two different computers. One other minus for the software type is that it requires full access to the operating system to be installed, when the installer might only want to sneak it up and catch the target users off guard.

So for parents who want to track their child’s PC activities or employers who want to monitor their workers or generally for computer users who want to back up typed texts, monitor remote computers, retrieve unknown passwords without depending on the operating system, hardware keyloggers provide the perfect answer.

The Frontline For Cats Is Applied On The Cats’ Skin

  • Posted on September 6, 2017 at 11:36 am

Fleas are a form of parasite which lives in the fur of animals like dogs and cats which have a thick fur. The fleas live in the fur depending upon the cat for its food and livelihood. Frontline for cats kills and abolishes the fleas within a day or more in cats. As the frontline for cats is applied on the cats’ skin they are completely cured and the cat becomes free of fleas within a day. In some cases frontline for fleas takes 2 days to affect the cats. Once the frontline for cats is applied the fleas are no more there and the cat is free of fleas for more than 3 weeks or even up to a month. The frontline for fleas can be used on kittens as well which are not too old. But the minimum age of the kitten should be more then 8 weeks.

Moreover the can be equally useful on cats which are pregnant. Another benefit of using the frontline for cats is that it is said to be water proof which makes it applicable on the cats which are outdoor or kept outside the home. These cats are more prone to the dangers of the fleas and the treatment needs to be applied for more than a day. The frontline for fleas should be used on cats after the washing and bathing of cats. The frontline for fleas should be applied to the skin of the cat directly for more than 24 hours. In this interval of 24 hours the pet should be kept away from water or should be kept dry so that the solution affects the cat. Frontline can be used on cats for treating fleas and some other allergies of the cat which are caused by the fleas.

The main thing is that when frontline is applied on the skin; it will absorb the ingredients fully in its skin thus giving better results. That is why frontline is applied on the skin. After that it saves the cat from fleas. The absorbed part releases in the month gradually preventing the fleas. Thus the frontline is needed to be use for only once a month. And keep the cat dry for a day. After the application of the frontline the more fleas become visible and come at the top. Thus you should not be misled that the fleas are increased and the frontline is not useful.
