Every SYPCOFFEE package notes the elevation at which your beans have been grown and we recently fielded an inquiry from a recipient about the difference, in the cup, that such a detail can make. In short, higher elevations and thus cooler temperatures can elongate bean maturity, allowing more time for natural sugar absorption and thus a higher propensity for a deep, rich, flavorful cup. And because they mature over a longer process, beans grown in high altitudes are known to produce more complex, floral and fruity cups rightly characterizing the regions from which they are borne. Interestingly, higher altitude beans can also be harder, allowing for flavor retention over longer periods in storage.

We snapped this pic from an overlook @goldmtncoffee's stunning Finca Idealista in Nicaragua. And yes, the coffee grown there exhibits all of the above traits.
