The spectacular landscapes, the diverse fauna and flora, and the exquisite seafood are not the only jewels of the Galapagos Islands, the island region hides a treasure full of aroma, flavor and totally unmatched texture, the Galapagos coffee!
Tourists comment that it is the aroma of charm, the local coffee is wonderful thanks to the geographical condition of the islands that make it a high-quality bean. Its aroma is intense and permanent, some with fruity notes.
The only coffee in its production is of strong acidity accompanied by a bitter touch that enchants everyone who tastes it. Just imagine enjoying an exquisite cup of coffee while observing the paradise of the islands.
The island of San Cristóbal and Santa Cruz are one of the main grain producers. Among the varieties obtained are: Catimor, Catuai, Caturra, Villalobos, Sarchimor, Typica, San Salvador and Bourbón.
But, you may wonder how did coffee get to the islands? Well, according to the Ministry of Tourism, it was in 1879 when Manuel J. Cobos, the first colonizer of San Cristóbal Island, established himself and dedicated his time to the cultivation of coffee and sugar cane.
