Epos Organic Fairtrade® 100% Arabica Honduras SHG (Strictly High Grown) single origin is more complex than its HG (High Grown) counterpart, making it a specialty coffee.

SHG (Strictly High Grown) means that the coffee was grown at an altitude of around 1350 metres above the sea level.

Coffee grown at high altitude, with lower temperature that has a slower ripening, which creates a more pleasant result in cup.

EP (European Preparation) specifies that the green beans are all aligned and carefully hand-selected eliminating any defective bean or foreign body.

This coffee gives in the cup a fruity fragrance combining caramel and aromatic flavours.

Medium acidity with full and liqueur body.

Consistent Quality

Epos’s blends and Single Origin coffees are composed of certified washed coffee, that is always guaranteed from the same origins.

This allows us to guarantee a consistently excellent quality product, distinguished by a truly unique identity that is manifested through their taste, aroma, mouthfeel and aftertaste.

Meaning of Epos

Epos is a lengthy narrative poem, ordinarily concerning a serious subject containing details of heroic deeds and events significant to a culture or nation.

The reason why Epos decided to take this name was because it wanted to use Ancient Greek heroic deeds to identify some of their blends. Sicily being known as The Italian Greece it only made sense to use this set of analogies.
