Our Cuban Crystal Mountain beans grow on the Escambray plateaus, in the heart of Cuba where the soil is rich in rocks of mica and quartz.
The particular characteristics of this soil, combined with the mild climate and frequent rains, form an ideal micro-climate for growing. Still, these beans represent less than 2% of the area's total production.
Enjoy its intense aroma, rich nutty notes and slightly smoky finish.
Our Cuba Sierra Cristal grows in the region of Guantánamo where a mild climate and frequent rains form the ideal micro-climate for coffee growing.
This full-bodied coffee is characterized by a rare combination of intense aroma with a delicate sweetness and a hint of chocolate.
Nestled in a ravine of tropical splendor, bordered by meandering rivers of crystal clear waters and perched on an incline between 2000 to 3000 feet above sea level, stands the beautiful Blue Baron Estate – a spread of 138 acres of ideal Blue Mountain coffee land.
Shaded in pristine rows and interspersed between clumps of natural tropical forest, is planted approximately 60 acres of the world’s finest coffee. The Blue Mountain’s lingering clouds provide a natural buffer for the luscious, green coffee trees, offering shade from the sun’s unrelenting rays; the low ambient temperature and relative humidity induced by the cloud cover, contributes to the slow maturation of the coffee bean, enhancing the unique fineness of its quality. Ripe cherries are lovingly handpicked by crews of trained harvesters, with each tree revisited up to 10 times over the harvesting period.
The Blue Mountain distinguishes itself by its incredible fragrance, delicate aroma and amazing sweetness. It is no surprise that coffee experts all deem that this coffee possesses all characteristics in perfect balance. This highland coffee ranks among the worlds most distinguished.
