Costa Rica Rainforest Alliance SHB EP Tarrazu SHB stands for Strictly Hard Beans which is synonymous "strictly high grown" (SHG). It usually refers to coffee grown over 4,500' above sea level. Beans grown at this altitude mature more slowly and grow to be harder and denser. 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. The Rainforest Alliance is a non-governmental organization with the published aims of working to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour.
