Product Description

Region: Galapagos Islands, San Cristobal Island

Altitude: 130-350 metres

Farm: San Jose

Process: Washed


Galapagos San Cristobal coffee is often revered as one of the world’s best. The micro-climate in this region is ideal for coffee production. The coffee is shade grown and fed by natural spring water from a crater lake in the mountains. The farm is often blanketed in a warm Galapagos Islands sea mist and this combination of circumstances allow the coffee cherries to develop slowly at a relatively low altitude for coffee cultivation. Certified bird-friendly, the farm protects the delicate indigenous song birds. All the removed coffee cherry pulp is re-used as fertiliser on the farm.

A light roast coffee which is rich, medium to full, with a subtle hint of sweet acidity. Quite simply the most balanced coffee we have ever tasted. Try it once and you will be hooked.

We recommend brewing this coffee as a filter or pourover. Use 18g of finely ground coffee per 250ml of water.

    I have tried most of the lighter range from Higgins and many other retailers. It stands head and shoulders above anything else I can find. Blue Mountain is generally expensive but not as good as this unless you find an exceptional one. It is not cheap but I always end up ordering it again. Light, nutty, smooth and not too strong.

    Agree with other review. I like this coffee. It is different from anything else I have tried. Nutty, like roast hazelnuts, smooth yet rich but not harsh or strong. I love the Higgins Jamaica Blue Mountainit is fabulous. I like this equally. Both worth buying.
