This coffee is from the Association of Coffee Growers of Belle-Anse (APCAB) Coop which has a total of 680 growers. APCAB coffees are known for being smooth and creamy and are shade grown which is a rarity in Haiti to have that kind of forest cover. The cooperative is paid roughly 300% higher wages than the Fair Trade minimum, not out of charity, but for having an exceptional product.
Blind Cupping Assessment: Smoky-sweet, chocolaty. Scorched mesquite, dark chocolate, gardenia, vanilla, roasted almond in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned with brisk acidity; light, delicate mouthfeel. Smoky chocolate notes are supported by scorched mesquite and gardenia in the finish.
Note: Keurig grind does not include cup; coffee grinded ideally for use with reusable K-cups.
