A nice, mild coffee that is worth the money. Best when made in a cafetière.
Climate / Geography
Crucially, Santa Cruz is lucky to enjoy a microclimate, situated as it is in the middle of the Galapagos group of islands, which intensifies the beans flavours. With a rainfall of 1750mm, the pure and balanced ecosystem of the island contributes to the outstanding taste of the Santa Cruz Estate coffee.
Produced from the same Bourbon variety coffee plants introduced by French agronomists in 1875, the Galapagos Islands law prohibits the use of chemicals and other pesticides, so Santa Cruz Estate coffee is organic coffee. Organic agriculture is an important source of income for island residents, especially as fisheries become depleted, and organic crops help reduce the need to import so much fresh food and minimize the introduction of invasive species that can arrive in these shipments.
