The first Cuban coffee plantation appeared in Cuba in 1748. But the bigger cultivation started in 1789 by thousands of French coffee farmers that had to escape from the armed slave revolt in Haiti. These farmers established wide knowledge about farming and processing in matter of coffee.
The French coffee farmers grew coffee beans in Sierra Maestra. The climatic condition and the soil composition were ideal for coffee plantation and allowed and intensive development for coffee farming. The famous Altura quality grows in the Sierra Maestra region and is named in the honour of the highest mountain peak of Cuba, produces an amazing smokey espresso fantastic to drink as a single origin.
In the eastern region of Cuba, the Sierra Maestra Mountains are home to some of the finest Arabica coffee beans in the world. The reddish-brown soil is extremely fertile and needs no chemical fertilizers because of the rich humus that’s plentiful in the region. (Humus refers to compost that contributes moisture and nutrients to the soil) The majority of coffee grown for export comes from the Sierra Maestra’s.
While the Sierra Maestra exclusively grows Arabica coffee, the Escambray Mountains in central Cuba produce both Arabica and Robusta. The majority of domestic coffee comes from this mountain range.
Cuban coffee is harvested by hand from the steep hillsides, and carried out by the coffee farmers to be transported by mule to the drying areas. In fact, the mule is a very important part of the local coffee culture and is often provided ‘top-notch’ veterinary care throughout his lifetime of service.
