I would like to welcome a new coffee to our little roasterie here at Art Brûlant. A Haitian coffee. Now Haitian coffee is very special, but this is even more so.
This coffee is a Haitian Blue from one of the oldest cooperatives in Haiti, the Coopacvod cooperative. At this time it is the only Arabica Blue Mountain being exported from Haiti. It is also Haiti’s only certified Organic Coffee.
So what does it mean to say that this is ‘Haitian Blue Mountain’? Simply that this coffee comes from trees that are of the same varietal as grown in the region of the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. The soil and growing conditions are also similar.
We have only had Haitian coffee once here, the rare Haitian Grande Cru de Beaumont. It was exceptional. This is as well.
