SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean; which creates a more desirable specialty cup; this classification is higher than HG.

EP (European Preparation) specifies that the raw beans are all hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
