    • D.

      Arabica

    Correct Answer
    A. Robusta
    Explanation
    Robusta is typically grown at lower elevations because it is a hardy species of coffee that can withstand higher temperatures and is more resistant to diseases and pests. It has a higher caffeine content and a more bitter taste compared to Arabica, which is why it is often used in instant coffee and espresso blends. Arabica, on the other hand, is typically grown at higher elevations where the cooler climate and higher altitude contribute to its delicate flavors and acidity. Mocha Java is a blend of Arabica and Robusta beans, while Tropicana is not a species of coffee.

Robusta beans are often used in instant coffee and espresso blends due to their strong and bitter taste, making them less desirable for those who prefer a milder flavor profile.
