Description

Thanks to one of the best climates in the world, Cuban coffee plants produce some of the best beans on the planet. In the eastern part of the country, the soil is so fertile and rich in nutrients that fertilisers are not needed, which has led Cuba to develop successful farming of organic coffee beans.

While Cuba has farmed coffee since the 18th century and was a major exporter, its production was severely damaged by Fidel Castro’s regime which resulted in the dissolution of large farms; a vicious US embargo for the last sixty years and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. It is now rebounding, and once more delighting coffee lovers all around the world.

In Cuba, coffee isn’t just a drink. It is a form of art, like the tea ceremony in Japan; it is a lifestyle, and café cubano is often served in pots shared by friends rather than individual cups. It has gained worldwide fame and you will find on the internet a plethora of websites dedicated to preparing this Cuban drink like a native!

Our Cuban coffee beans are a medium roast which makes for a less strong coffee than the dark roast used for café cubano, and it is perfect for medium lattes and cappuccinos, mild medium espresso, and can also be used in cafetières.

Grown at altitudes of 1,200-2,000 meters above sea level

Harvested between July and February

Milled by washing and drying in the sun

Has the aroma of caramel, citrus and rich and intense tones

These beans are suitable for: medium latte and cappuccino, medium espresso, cafetières.

Did you realise: our coffee packs are always 250gms, not 225gms as is often the case with mass market coffee.

    My favourite coffee – of all I have tried, and actually this in a cafetiere is better than my Nespresso as my go-to wake up drink.
