This was the first time in roasting, grinding, brewing, cupping (yes we did), and tasting this. We were already fans of 'Haitian Blue' and it is on our reorder list of favorites and must constantly have on hand. But this one, 'The Haitian High Elevation Blue Pine' will also be on our favorite list and reorder. It is bright and complex and yet still smooth and enjoyable. We have never really tried 'cupping' before this and not even sure if it was done correctly? But first, just the aroma, then slurpy-sipping was great. Allowed to cool and the aromas and complexity was even more pronounced. Roasted this and the 'Haitian Blue' separately both at 1/2 pounds and both medium into the second crack. We did this to compare. There is no comparison between the two! Both are unique! Both are different! Both are great! What's wrong with that? Nothing!! :) PS Impatient me of course, did this same day of roasting. Huge difference 24 and 48 after roasting! :)

Was looking for something other than my usual (and favorite) Ethiopian Yirgacheffe that also had a low acidic, citrusy profile. Was not disappointed.

I’ve had Blue Pine Haitian Coffee before before an totally enjoyed it! And this coffee is living up to what I’ve had before! So I give Coffee Bean Corral five stars, as I also give to the coffee itself!
