Why you'll love it: This seasonal coffee represents three-years’ investment in the Haiti Coffee Academy and a commitment to re-invigorating the Haitian coffee industry. It’s the best micro-lot we’ve seen yet out of this project, and we’re looking forward to many more.
Story of the bean: The Mission of the Haiti Coffee Academy is to improve the livelihood of Haitian farmers by increasing quality and quantity of coffee they produce through training programs, distribution of seedlings, and a stronger supply chain. This coffee represents contributions from 150 farmers in the Association des Paysans Agricoles de Savane-Zombie. Many of those farmers have benefited from plant nurseries built by the Haiti Coffee Academy, as well as coffee growing classes directed by the Academy’s staff agronomist, Cantave Fils-Aime. The result is a sweet, bright Haitian coffee with tasting notes of lavender, orange, and caramel.
