  • Behind the bean

    This equatorial group of Islands produces exceptional coffee, despite being grown at a very low altitude of 150-300mt.  This is only because the Humbolt current brings cool sea breezes daily, which reduces daily temperatures equivalent to higher altitudes of 1300mt in elevation.  These cool breezes enable the cherry to ripen slowly and develop its unique gentle flavour profile. The Rich nutrients, brought in by the cool breeze combining rich volcanic soil and cool spring water from the El Junco crater lake, the coffee has elevated sweetness unique to bourbon varietal and the microclimate of the island conditions.   

    The unique coffee is strictly limited to an export quantity of 5,000 bags and Jasper has the only two bags available in Australia.  

    Environmental Impact and Biodiversity

    The trees create shade-grown conditions and are certified Bird-Friendly by the Smithsonian Institute, and the plantation carried a UNESCO certification for Patrimony of Humanity, which indicated it is a sustainable resource for the islanders.  the Coffee is Organic, by virtue that the Ecuador Government banned pesticides and agrochemicals.  All coffee pulp is composted and returned to the soil.  the coffee is planted amongst the avocadoes, guavas, oranges, and cedars, which provides biodiversity for the protection of indigenous songbirds

    The unique isolation and biodiversity of the islands was a trigger of knowledge informing Charles Darwin with vital analysis to form his world-changing theory of the Origin Of Species. Well done Charlie, we love your coffee!

Best overall

It is one of the best coffees I have tried, very balanced, layered and fragrant. Very enjoyable to drink.

Always look forward to a special release coffee from Jasper Coffee team.
