Roast was better than the flat berry but could be a bit lighter as well for my taste. Delicious in any event. Best coffee St Helena produces.
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
- Country: St Helena
- Altitude: 400
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.
