El Salvador Strictly Hard Bean – “strictly hard bean (SHB)” usually refers to coffee grown at altitudes higher than about 4,500 feet above sea level. Beans grown at high altitudes mature more slowly and grow to be harder and denser than beans grown at lower elevations. The inherent consistency and taste attributes of high grown beans makes them more desirable, and generally more expensive, than coffees grown at lower elevations.
Sumatran Mandheling Grade 1 – Mandheling is the name for the premiere coffee of Sumatra growing near Lake Tawar in the Northern tip of the Aceh region of Sumatra. There is no particular farm that these Sumatran beans came from, but a variety of small farms working together toward the common goal of producing great coffee beans. Mandheling coffee has its own flavor of coffee compared to others. With its rich coffee taste and mild sweetness, it has become known to be one of the better Sumatran beans around.
Ethiopian Yiracheffe – It was in Ethiopia that the first coffee trees flourished centuries ago and even today the breadth of its flavor experience is profound. Yergacheffe is a town in the Sidamo region of Ethiopia, and the coffees produced in this area will amaze you with their citrus and floral notes.
Roasted in small batches to ensure freshness of flavour.
