SHB stands for Strictly Hard Beans which is synonymous with "strictly high grown" (SHG). It usually refers to coffee grown over 4,500' above sea level—beans are grown at this altitude mature more slowly and grow harder and denser resulting in more flavour.
The inherent consistency and taste attributes of SHG make them more desirable and more expensive.
EP stands for European Preparation which means imperfect beans, pebbles and other foreign matter are removed by hand.
