A very rare and deliciously divine Galapagos San Cristobal coffee from one of the islands in the Archipelago.
Galapagos San Cristobal is often revered as one of the world’s best coffees. The micro-climate in the region is ideal for coffee production. Coffee trees are shade grown and fed by natural spring water from a crater lake up 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.
Galapagos San Cristobal is a medium roast with a rich, medium body. The subtle acidity is fruity with hints of apricot, pear and caramel sweetness.
Quite simply the most balanced coffee we have ever tasted. Try it once and you will be hooked.
I am often asked “Mr Higgins, which is your favourite coffee?”
That question takes me all the way back to when I first Joined the company. Then I was the most junior member of staff. Though I had worked in the business before leaving school and for as long as I could remember, I was the new boy, a trainee.
