About

Haiti Landscape

 

Haiti’s Best Coffee sources its beans from small local farm co-op producers. This means we buy directly from the farmers who pick each coffee bean by hand. This “closed-circuit” relationship ensures a holistic life cycle to ensure an intimate and personal experience with our coffee. As a result of this relationship, our farmers gets paid directly with no “middleman”. We have found that this model best allow him to spend locally and thus promote the local economy and true regional economic development.

We do not maintain certified organic designation. Due to the lack of fertilizers and insecticides in the mountains of Haiti, our product is naturally untouched by any chemical additives.
