About Haitian Mountain Bleu/Blue Coffee

Haiti is a small place - only slightly larger than Vermont. Plus, much of it is vertical: 65%. Haiti is the most mountainous nation in the Caribbean, and the highest point is Pic la Selle: 2,680 meters / 8,792 feet.

Mountains aren't good for most agriculture, but they're IDEAL for coffee growing; coffee trees thrive in moist but well-drained soil at high altitudes. The higher the altitude, the bigger/harder the bean, the better the coffee.

Because coffee trees are water-intensive, they do best growing in shade. Fruit trees provide ideal canopies where fruit becomes additional food. Moreover, coffee plays an important role in the reforestation of Haiti.

Although small, Roosters are tenacious. We're quickly building a network with small-scale farmer cooperatives; we source coffee from all major coffee regions in Haiti.

Every bag has a mission.

Each 12 oz bag of Haitian Mountain Blue is $9.50 - 100% of proceeds go back to Haiti: that's a whopping 33% per bag! Here's what we do with proceeds.

Our Haitian Mountain Blue coffee is rare and comes from the same type of coffee plant & is grown in a similar region as the wildly successful Jamaican Blue coffee - but at a fraction of the price.

We trade directly with the farmers - we export beans green from Haiti to the U.S.; we air roast these beautiful beans in small batches to provide FRESH and EXCELLENT tasting coffee.

Our customers say great things about us -- in numerous, unsolicited reviews.

Haitian coffee is a classic Caribbean in every sense -- chocolatety sweet with mellow citrus-highlights. It’s a perfect cup for those who like to ease into the day or relax with coffee after work. If you’re a fan of Jamaican Blue Mountain and Kona / Hawaiian coffees, you’ll love Haitian.

Fair Trade / Direct Trade: we’re often asked if our coffee is certified fair trade & our answer is: “We are Direct Traders: we work with and buy our beans directly from farmer owned cooperatives. We provide pre-harvest financing and pay well above Fair Trade prices (which isn't hard ). Most importantly, we’re a nonprofit and use coffee as a means to support the extremely poor in Haiti where we return 100% of the proceeds of coffee sales back to the farmers and their communities in the form of projects that support coffee production, land management, and small business development/entrepreneurship.

Our coffee is from a single origin and is natural; natural crops mean a better coffee, a better environment. Put simply, Haitian farmers can’t afford chemicals; they use natural and organic methods like composting and shade-grown farming techniques.

Our RARE Mountain Blue roast is rich, nutty & semi-sweet; cool nights at high altitudes produce gentle & FLAVORFUL coffees!

Haitian Mountain bleu coffee growers hand pick coffee cherries; wet processing techniques yield a unique blue-green colored bean.

We ship these BEAUTIFUL, 100% Arabica beans from Haiti to the U.S.; we air roast in small batches to cultivate the natural nuances of the beans to a medium, dark roast. This allows for a clean cup and yields FRESH and EXCELLENT tasting coffee that is perfectly balanced in body and acidity.
