Haitian coffee, famous for its rich taste and various aromas, has been a staple of Haiti since its colonization by France in the 17th century. With some of the world's best Arabica Typica plants growing on its highest mountains, Haiti was responsible for half of the world's supply of coffee in the late 1700's.
Hurt by natural disasters, U.S. led embargoes and political unrest, the Haitian coffee production decreased largely in volume. That's when Brazil moved in and took control of the world coffee market.
Today, Haitian coffee is making a comeback on the global market as one of the finest coffee in the Caribbean, if not "THE" finest.
