Strictly High Grown (SHG) means strictly awesome. Our Nicaraguan SHG beans are grown organically on volcanic soils. What does this mean? When I roast it (light roast), the flavor profile is complex caramel. I finally found a bean that matches one of the Yemeni Beans I was gifted from a farm a number of years back in terms of deep, strong, natural caramel flavor.
Give this roast a try, you won’t be sorry!
I discovered green coffee beans living in Dubai. Coffee roasteries were all around (in the Arab world, a roastery sells green coffee beans for hand-roasting). So after getting hold of some Yemeni beans, I had to give it a try. I was hooked after the first time. There is nothing quite like a cup of freshly roasted coffee. It is also an eye-opener as you quickly learn how stale commercial coffee is (yeah Starbucks I am talking to you!!!). Today, I do small batch craft roasting. I have a custom 5 lb. roaster and a couple of other smaller ones that I use for different beans and different combinations.
Here is a video from when I first started out years ago. I made a video of myself roasting coffee in my old popcorn popper in Dubai.
We have a number of white teas here at Florahome Station. Pai Mu Tan is available in the shop, at markets and in the online store.
