Description

From the southern city of Antigua this Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) grows on the mountains surrounding the city. The region produces some of the most distinguished coffees in the world. "Strictly Hard Bean" just means that it is grown at high altitudes, so the bean grows a little more slowly and becomes harder. This gives it its unique taste. In the cup there's malt and hops and a hint of spice, but when it cools it gives a great melted chocolate smoothness that will knock you out.
