Haitian Coffee Overview

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.

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!
