A Brief History
Up until the 1950s, Haiti was the 3rd highest exporter of green coffee in the world. Natural disaster and political unrest made for a tumultuous time after the 50s for coffee production, which led to a huge decline in production until recent years. The pride of the Haitian people and the willingness of outside influencers to reinvest into a once thriving agricultural market is how Haiti will become a key player in the coffee world once again. The proof is in the cup!
A Taste of Haiti
Rich in flavor and historical significance, what we drink from Haiti today is very much identical to what original farmers and growers drank over 300 years ago.
