The western nation on the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic, coffee was also introduced to Haiti by Spanish colonists in 1715. At one point Haiti was the top coffee producer in the world, making up over half of the global market, but today they make up just 0.2% of global production with both mango and cocoa having more export value for the country.
Haiti is the most mountainous Caribbean nation, which makes it ideal for growing coffee. Most Haitian coffee is organic, though it may not be Certified Organic, and is processed using the dry method. This results in a mellow bean that’s smooth and slightly sweet with naturally low acidity.
