Galapagos Islands coffee is 100% organic by definition, as the use of chemicals is forbidden throughout the archipelago. Also, this coffee from the island of San Cristóbal is allowed to carry the label ‘Bird-Friendly’. Bird-Friendly indicates a highly sustainable method of cultivation that spares even the region’s delicate songbirds.
This natural production method also ameliorates the taste of the coffee. Galapagos Islands coffee is grown on fertile volcanic soil. This rich soil remains in perfect condition because of the mineral water from the crater lake in the mountains, which makes its way to the plantations through the rocky slopes. That’s the all-natural taste that you experience in every cup of Galapagos Islands coffee.
The exceptional taste of Galapagos Islands coffee is a direct result of the ideal circumstances in which the coffee beans on San Cristóbal slowly ripen. The plantations benefit from the natural mineral water that finds its way down from the volcanic crater lake through small brooks along the rock banks.
The microclimate, created by the inland mist and the hot air that comes in over the sea, completes this coffee crop Utopia. The superior quality of Galapagos Islands Coffee is carefully protected at every step of the coffee process.
Once the cherries are ripe, they are hand-picked and then processed in a natural manner. The washed coffee beans are dried in the sun. The residue – the pulp of the coffee cherries – is reused as natural fertiliser for the plantation. Once dried, the coffee bean’s thin layer (parchment) is saved. This allows the coffee bean to be fully preserved. Before the coffee beans are shipped from the Galapagos Islands, they have met all the strict quality controls that guarantee a genuine gourmet coffee.
