Behind the Cup
The Galápagos is a difficult coffee to find, and a coffee of exceptional quality!! The “Medium roast” seams to be best suited for this delicate coffee, as a darker roast would mask the subtleties of its flavors and aromas.
As the name suggests, it is cultivated on the island of San Cristobal, where the use of fertilizers and chemicals are strictly prohibited. When ripe, the fruits are hand picked and washed naturally and ecologically in pure water. A unique climate, tropical rain and a fertile volcanic soil gives this Ecuadorian vintage a rich and slightly acidic aroma. An excellent example of the balance between full bodied flavor and relative acidity.

Wow, what a treat. Both my girlfriend and I enjoyed this one most of our entire order, though they were all fantastic. This one seemed to have a really nice aftertaste of caramel that we both noticed. Very balanced taste, acidity, bitterness. Awesome!
