Bamboo Hedge Peaberry, St Helena

Bamboo Hedge Peaberry, St Helena

( 2 Reviews)
St Helena has been a British colony since the 17th Century and is one of the most isolated of British overseas territories. The native Green Tipped Bourbon Arabica varietal coffee was introduced to St Helena in 1733 by its then owner, The East India Company. The island's most famous resident was the Emperor Napoleon who was exiled there after his defeat at Waterloo 1815 until his death in 1821. This coffee yields a cup of superb elegance and subtlety characterized by floral bouquet and a pronounced acidic fruitiness. The Peaberry beans constitute only about 5% of an already very small and rare coffee crop. This coffee has clean, bright and beautifully balanced notes of citrus, honey, berry and stone fruits.

Climate / Geography

The Island of St Helena is a small, mountainous, sub-tropical island of 47 square miles, situated in the South Atlantic Ocean between Angola and Brazil. Caressed by the south east trade winds, the Island constitutes one of the purest ecological environments in the world with the local guano-derived natural fertiliser being applied very sparingly to the exceptionally rich volcanic soil. The coffee is processed using pure spring water from the Island's Central Ridge peaks

Technical Information

Additional Info

On St Helena only a single type of Arabica bean known as Green Tipped Bourbon Arabica is grown. This is a subtle and delicate bean, which requires great care during harvesting, wet processing and roasting, to ensure that all of its wonderfully delicate characteristics are preserved.

COFFEE TIPS & FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW....

Coffee is the solution..who cares what the question is.

  • Grind fresh

    An investment in a small grinder will take your coffee pleasure up from a 7 to a 9 in a single swoop.  Many of coffee's richest and most delicious flavors are lost within less than a minute of grinding - escaped sensory pleasure that could have been yours. The simple act of grinding your beans fresh gives you the maximum ability to unlock what your coffee has to offer.

  • Keep it fresh

    Stale beans loses flavor. Keeping beans fresh is easier than you think. Once opened, store your bag of coffee in a cool dry place.  We recommend using a vacuum sealed storage container to maintain aroma and rich, full coffee flavor.

  • Engage your senses.

    Engage all your senses to get the most from your coffee - like excellent wine, coffee (at it's finest) is a multi-sensory joy.

     
  • Less is more

    To get the most from your coffee we suggest drinking from a small glass. By drinking your coffee in a small glass (we sometimes use brandy glasses) and interspersing your sips with a little water, you will experience huge flavours from every mouth full.

  • Water and oxygen bring coffee to life

    Saliva helps to liberate the volatile aromas in your mouth and a big breathe of oxygen helps to carry those aromas up through the mouth and into the nose for retronasal smelling to take effect.  Our Head Taster, Guy Wilmot is obsessive about hydration as being one of the secrets to his success in the cupping room.

  • Heat your cup, drink it now

    Steamed milk drinks like Cappuccino, Latte and Flat White are little daily pleasures we love. Be careful to not over heat beyond 70C as milk starts to burn and loses it's sweet deliciousness.  To avoid the temptation, use cold milk in a cold jug when steaming and make sure you have heated your porcelain cup.  Enjoy your drink as soon as it is prepared (they call it espresso for a reason) - it'll be the perfect temperature without being overheated!

  • Save Money and Time, whilst enjoying higher quality coffee.

    Why not pick up an Impress Brewer from our accessories section. The Impress Brewer is not only a coffee plunger but also doubles as a thermal travel mug.  You can therefore brew your coffee on the go and enjoy it on your commute instead of spending money on coffee at a coffee shop... This way you can select your favourite type of coffee and enjoy it on a daily basis.

  • Did you know?

    Did you know that the 500 billion disposable cups we manufacture annually placed end to end could circumnavigate the earth 1,360 times? Why not try a KeepCup and do your part for the environment and look good whilst doing it..

  • How do you take yours?

    Apparently, espresso is regulated by the Italian government because it is considered an essential part of their daily life.

  • Did you know?

    Coffee is actually a fruit. Well…the bean comes from a ripped berry that is hand-picked. Could this be considered as your 5-a-day? We’ll let you decide.
