Location, location, location! Especially true for coffee beans: the skyscraping 6,000-feet heights at which these beans were grown, within Terrazu's coffee-mecca mountainsides, are some of the best places in the world to cultivate specialty coffee. Considered high even for "high grown", coffee from over 5,000 feet benefits from a host of advantages: a cooler climate and natural water drainage result in beans that ripen slowly, languorously, while their sugars develop for much longer than those of typical beans. Similar to aged wine or cheese, these beans age on the vine, and harden, becoming heavy and dense-- some countries refer to these as "strictly hard bean", or SHB. Harder beans thrive during roasting, emerging from the roaster with all of their subtle flavors intact.
