This coffee is from 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: Sweetly nut-toned. Roasted hazelnut, cedar, cocoa powder, date, magnolia in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with gentle acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to cocoa-toned hazelnut.
Note: Keurig grind does not include cup; coffee grinded ideally for use with reusable K-cups.
