Antigua coffees are well known and highly rated. In Antigua, coffee is nurtured from the bean to the bag by farmers with immense knowledge and a strong dedication to the art of coffee growing. Antiguans are superior in their quality control methods, literally hand picking imperfect beans from the running belt. The coffee growing custom of large shade trees originated here and over 100 species of shade trees can be counted on a single plantation. The proper level of shade slows the maturity of the coffee plant, which in turn offers a more rich and complex flavor. Shade grown coffee is one of the most environmentally benign crops in the world.
