Cuban Coffee Overview

The eastern part of Cuba is home to the Sierra Maestra Mountains, a region known for producing hand-picked Arabicas picked to ensure the best quality. Coffee also is grown further west in the Escambray Mountains.

Unfortunately, coffee production in Cuba is inconsistent due to heavy rain and flooding during the wet season as well as poor infrastructure that inhibits transportation.

About The Coffee Maven

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
