Strictly Hard Bean, SHB: Coffee grown at very high Altitude produce a denser (Strictly Hard Bean) more vibrant flavor profile than those grown at lower Altitudes. Higher altitudes provide an Arabica Coffee friendly environment, the climate tends to be cooler with less direct sunshine and plenty of moisture. This causes the coffee fruit to mature slowly allowing more time to develop depth and sweetness, as well as many of the desirable characteristics we look for in fine Specialty coffees.
