All Cuban coffees are grown and cultivated under the forest canopies of the Sierra Maestra Mountains, in fine deep soil, rich in humus and without the use of any chemical products.
As coffee is dependent on its terroir (the environment within which it is grown) for its flavours. The altitude coupled with the soil and surrounding vegetation, gives some Cuban coffees a smokey tobacco flavour, while others located near sugar plantations tend to have a sweeter flavour.
All of our coffees are 100% Arabica bean cultivated and handpicked in the Sierra Maestra Mountains, shade grown in fine deep soil rich in humus and without the use of chemicals. The beans are then sun dried before they are roasted and packaged in Havana. Cuba’s climate, soil conditions and careful cultivation make for a faultless production.
The coffee aficionado will enjoy this exiting taste as appose to the uniform ness and blandness of most high street coffees.
Cuba has never been known as a volume producer of coffee, yet in contrast it has a reputation as the finest producer of quality coffee.
Havana Cafe serves a range of Cuban Coffees Cubita, Serrano and Santiago.
