Place of Origin: Cuba
Cuba is a country comprising the islands of Cuba, Isla de la Juventud and several archipelagos in the Caribbean Sea. It is famous for its production of sugar, cigars and coffee. With rich soil, humid weather, as well as adequate rainfalls, the country is an ideal place for producing coffee.
Coffee growing in Cuba started in the mid-18th century when the French introduced coffee seedlings from Haiti. Since then, the coffee industry has been managed and supervised by the national government. While there are a lot of ideal places in the country for producing coffee, the Crystal Mountain is the best of all. The Mountain is located on Escambray Plateaus, where the soil is rich in rocks of mica and quartz, hence its name: Crystal Mountain. As the conditions of the Crystal Mountain are very much similar to the Blue Mountain in Jamaica, it is also nicknamed the Cuban Blue Mountain.
The unique characteristics of the soil, added with the mild climate and frequent rains, form an ideal micro-climate for growing the rare and outstanding coffee. The coffee berries are all hand harvested to ensure the high quality, with stringent measurements determined by the government.
The Cuban Crystal Mountain coffee is very rare and precious: firstly it’s because of the economic sanctions on Cuba by the US, so that it’s not freely available in the markets; secondly it’s due to the mass purchase of Cuban coffee beans by France and Japan, therefore it makes it even more difficult to buy coffee beans directly from Cuba. In spite of the above issues, coffee lovers from the world are still enthusiastic about the Cuban Crystal Mountain Coffee.
The highly intense aroma with an elegant, delicate sweetness and smooth creamy body from the Cuban Crystal Mountain Coffee have deeply impressed the tasters from all over the world. The unique taste with hints of cigar, berries and malt has made the nectar one of the best coffees in the world.
