Coffees grown at altitudes above 3,000 feet are described as "Hard Bean" or HB; above 4,500 feet is referred to as "Strictly Hard Bean" or SHB. The higher altitudes and lower temperatures produce a slower maturing fruit and a harder, less porous bean, and are thus more desirable. Terms like SHB, SHG, and the like can vary from region to region, and are used more pervasively in Guatemala coffee growing areas.
