In 1715, French colonizers first brought coffee plants to the Caribbean Islands of Haiti and Martinique, which plants were later spread to other islands, such as Jamaica in 1728 by Sir Nocholas Lawes (The then Governor).

Indisputably, Coffee from the Caribbean are among the highest quality in the world, especially coffee from Haiti and Jamaica. Besides the know-how deriving from their long coffee growing tradition, and the surgical precision level of attention to quality – those unique terroirs have been gifted with diverse landscapes, exceptionally fertile, well-draining acidic and misty soil, topped by their high-altitude regions which provide ideal growing conditions for coffee, resulting with a mild flavor, gentle acidity, and distinct aroma.

Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, stands out as an exceptional coffee.

Haitian coffee similarly stands out as a high-graded specialty coffee, albeit a smaller scale of production compared to its peak years. The coffee’s unique characteristics still attract global attention.
