This is the type of “gateway” coffee that will lead you into into the Specialty Coffee realm! This coffee has no bitterness to it, and will remind you of the infamously expensive Jamaica Blue Mountain.
This coffee is extremely approachable, meaning pretty much any palate will enjoy. It is great for folks who have issues with indigestion, as is the case with most island coffees. It is super low in acidity, has a silky smooth creamy body and notes of almonds.
Grown under the rare shade of the Blue Pine Forest in Haiti, the surrounding community is very proud of their conservation and together they protect the land from further deforestation.
