    Dude... good luck!

    Of 8 different brokers that I have used over the years I have never seen this on an sample offer list.

    Still... you never know unless you ask.

    Re: Galapagos island coffee

    Hi all
    The Galápagos archipelago is a busy, bustling place. Lots of locals, scientists and tourists. I remembered it got some press coverage a few years ago when some local fishermen help scientists at the research station hostage.

    Google says there is coffee grown on the Islands from the original French plantings and shows several links to places that have sold it.

    Re: Galapagos island coffee

    Plagerised from google:

    Galapagos San Cristóbal
    This coffee is a rariety.

    The Galapagos archipelago with 13 islands is situated approximately 1000 km west of Ecuador. It belongs to the national territory of Ecuador. The island San Cristóbal (558 km²) consists of a long extinct, drastically eroded volcano which arises in the southwest to 730m. The crater lake El Junco is situated in the humid highlands. The water of the El Junco is used for the irrigation of the volcano.

    The coffee from San Cristóbal has a intensive aroma, full-bodied, a lightly sourness with a velvety nice aroma. It is a sensational coffee.

    lightly sourness?

    Has anyone noticed, how when a coffee has a slight citrus tang, that people mistake it for bitterness?

    You think thats what they were going for when they said lightly sourness?
