This coffee is from CAB, a smaller subset of UCOCAB which is a co-op of co-ops and has over 2000 members. CAB is the highest elevation from all of UCOCAB, so it is the last to harvest in each cycle as a result. The President of UCOCAB, Walter, oversees all coffee processing to ensure consistency. He has been working directly with our trading partner, Café Kreyol, to ensure sustainability and quality control on the farm and cooperative level. This coffee is 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. Cupping Score: 87 Heavy almond and peanut flavors, buttery mouthfeel, smooth floral acidity, balanced creamy body.

Roasting notes: This coffee is enjoyable at any roast. Nutty, and notes of chocolate with some small hints of soft fruit and floral tones at the lighter roast. A medium roast just before the 2nd crack keeps it fuller bodied and smooth.

Lighter roast is very syrupy and sweet with a strong almond character. Medium to medium dark roasts bring out spicy and intense dark cocoa notes that taste like an elegant, spicy chocolate bar.
$8.50
A harmonious coffee with pronounced sweetness in the aftertaste. Try a medium/medium dark roast to bring out distinctive nuttiness with a hint of soft fruit and low acidity.
$8.75
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish

This coffee is surprisingly full-bodied. In terms of the bean itself, the grain size is very uniform resulting in a more uniform roast. The beans swell to a nice plump size with little chaff. My roast was to full city where the nuttiness and floral tones really stand out. The roast flavor does not overwhelm the prominent origin flavors even at full city. Sweet like candy. My preference is SO shots of espresso where the heavy body really shines. The crema is thick and uniform.

Nowhere were the words “Green beans” visible on their website, So I’m stuck w/ 2 bags of this stuff. But there are a half-dozen videoes on you tube on coffee roasting, I’m not useless in the kitchen so ill try to roast them. Still pissed.
