Most Café Bustelo coffee is made from a blend of Arabica and Robusta beans, which is also common in Italian-style espresso beans. While we tend to think of Robusta coffee beans as being of lower quality, they are in fact an important component of coffee blends, especially for espresso. In addition to its popular ground coffee, Café Bustelo is also known for its instant coffee. While the general feedback on the Supreme line is positive, many Bustelo fans recommend sticking with the original, tried and true, and saving extra money.
It can now be found almost everywhere and Café Bustelo is a well-known name within the Latino coffee community. To capitalize on its promise of strength and comfort, Café Bustelo has also broken into the capsule market. A long-time favorite of both money-conscious and cash-strapped college students, Café Bustelo is one of the most affordable brands you can find.
