Haitian Blue Organic is grown off the same type of plant as the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. This one comes from one of the oldest coops in Haiti, Coopacvod. This coop strictly grows Organic and shade grown coffee. The coop's President, Francis Dubois found a way to use local river water to power the plant and recycle the water to put back into those rivers. Not only has the coop found a way to sustain the local water sources, but has created sustainable employment for citizens of Haiti.

Cupping Notes: Mellow, smooth, and creamy body, super nutty, almonds, a buttery mouthful. It has a low acidity, medium complexity, and a sweet, smooth finish. A flawless cup!

This is by far our favorite coffee. My hubby and myself love this one. Great to roast. Just to 2nd crack.Always come back to this one. Highly recommend. Please don't ever not have this one.

I really like this coffee. For 1/3 the price of JBM, and close to the taste, it’s a good value and I will buy again

What a fantastic surprise! Just delicious coffee on its own with nothing else needed. Amazing taste for just using a cast iron skillet on an electric stovetop.

Just found a "lost" partial bag of this from a previous order, tucked away behind my other CBC green beans. Found treasure! I had to roast a batch immediately in my West Bend Poppery to the start of 2nd crack; then press it through my Nanopresso while the beans were still warm because I was a bit too excited to wait. It did not disappoint! Delicious!! While my wife and I, our family, and friends enjoy the variety of beans I roast, this one is my special treat... a smell/taste experience! Savoring it brings back memories of visiting Jamaica and tasting their wonderful blue mountain coffee, but without the high price tag. I highly recommend drinking coffee from a cafe cup that allows you to take in the aroma as you sip. The aroma of a great coffee like this is a major component of the experience! Thanks, CBC for offering this superb bean at a great value.

Stopped roasting just before second crack on a Gene Cafe and allowed to degas for 48 hours. Made my pour over and what a wonderful smooth cup of coffee. It is exactly as described...smooth, buttery, low acidity with a very clean finish. Thanks Coffee Bean Corral!

Roasted to 2nd crack on stove top. First day it had a slightly savory, peppery flavor. Days 2-3 and beyond developed a peanut butter flavor that was superb. Loved it in latte.

Organic Haitian Blue is a great way to get an idea of how good Jamaican blue mountain is. Compared to Kenyan Blue mountain, it's less robust but less acidic and rich in flavor. Medium roast is recommended with at least 36 hrs to de-gas before grinding. Try it You won't be disappointed.

Just "Wow". Roasted 1/2# at City+, pulled 30 seconds after 1st crack, the other 1/2# at Full City, pulled immediately after 2nd crack, in an SR800 with extension tube. The 1st thing that you notice is the mouthfeel. Smooth, buttery and full-bodied, similar to Kona or JBM. No specific flavor jumps out, maybe slightly nutty, but nothing overpowering. Really quite subtle. Speaks to the balance this bean possesses. Both roasts had similar attributes, the darker roast was just a tad earthier and roaster. Wouldn't have wanted to go any darker and compromise the flavor in the bean. Just a delightful cup.

Second review: Second roast went well into Full City + with second crack occurring a good 5-8 seconds, a bit more than the first roast as I wanted a little more body. Tagged and bagged it and after a day just a bit of oils were seeping out. As the days passed (and I drank more and more) the oils seeped out a bit more. After about 5 days it really matured and I found myself drinking cup after cup after cup I couldn't get enough. Will finish roasting what is left today. Don't think twice about ordering this.

Great coffee. Took it right up to the 2nd crack and immediately put it into a cooling cycle. I like to keep it open to the air for a couple of days for a solid cure before the grind. It was delicious! Very mellow with a darker, nuttier flavor. Smooth and complex with under tones of dark chocolate. Lowly acidic with a sweet finish, I would cup this in the High 80’s maybe even the low 90’s. It’s a keeper!

I usually roast beyond Full City + and well into second crack however with this bean per reviews I roasted just to Full City +. I think second crack went for 2-3 seconds. I tagged and bagged it and cheated by brewing a cup the next day and it was really good. I believe it will only cure-out even better in the next few days. Per usual Coffee Bean Corral delivered and I will never buy beans from anyone else. I got a notice of shipment within 15 minutes of the order and it arrived a day earlier than expected all the way to Phoenix. @Ray Cotter, (and anyone), whenever you end up with a really bad result this is usually the result of a stalled FC. I've had this happen a few times myself due to negligence on my part during the roast.

We roasted our first pound of this the other night, and tried it this morning. We did a medium roast in our Behmor, just past first crack. Our first impression was "Wow, this is really good." Then we tried another sip, and we said, "Wow, this is really good." Creamy, smooth, not acidic and slightly nutty, it's hands down one of the best coffees we have tried. Haitian Blue will go into our regular rotation - it's a keeper.

This is absolutely one of the best coffees we've ever had. We do all of our roasts just past first crack so I can't speak for darker roasts but this was just fantastic and well worth the couple extra bucks.

I ordered several times the Haiti coffee since 2020. Roasted to city for my ice dripping or V60 (three days after roasting) or to full city for expresso (19 days after roasting). Haiti coffee is perhaps the closest one to Jamaica Blue Mountain in terms of balance, brightness and sweetness, but with only a fraction of the cost. Will certainly roast more at as as the supply lasts.

This coffee is so good. With my SR540 I dialed in the roast, fast high heat and aggressive. City roast. So good. Full body, layers of flavors. One of, if not my favorite bean.

Not a fan. I won’t be re-ordering this coffee. There was simply no life to it. Jamaican BlueMountain was also a big disappointment. I will not be ordering any more Caribbean coffee. I think it’s overrated.

I am a novice roaster. I tried this at medium and medium dark roasts, and it was good but meh, didn't see what all the hype was. Then I tried it at a lighter roast, just after first crack, and now I understand. It was a delicious cup o joe. This one grew on me, and was better after around four days of rest. Mild but distinct flavor profile. I would purchase it again.

I didn't do a good job roasting these beans. I was experimenting with profiles on the Behmor 1600. Rookie move with a good bean. I should leave experiments to inexpensive products. However, the coffee turned out great! Very forgiving thank God! Mellow and smooth. If a novice like me can make this work, you can too!. The beans seemed fresh and clean. Already placed another order. (I'll let you know how the JBM roast goes)

A little more expensive compared to other Caribbean coffees, but this is the same variety that gives us Jamaican Green Mountain and Hawaiian Kona so it is still a bargain. It still comes out to pennies a cup and this is life, not a dress rehearsal, so drink up!!!

Really nice stuff. Roasts beautifully. Expensive but seems equivalent to quality. I’ve been taking it to just under second crack and brewing espresso in a flair press... my favorite bean out of the dozen or so I tried from this company. Too expensive for all the time but a special treat.

Lot of bang for the buck, especially if you like JBM. I do not use the word “aftertaste,” rather the “finish” doesn’t linger quite as long, yet still tasty. But then again, you don’t pay three of four times as much. And they present as a big, beautiful bean. Bottom line, a lovely coffee with more complexity than cheaper beans, and they taste like, well...great coffee!

This is beautiful! My wife lives it! It is constantly on our re-order list! Very close to Jamaican blue Mountain! I am glad I practice with this (Actually the first time was to my satisfaction as it has been ever since), In preparation of roasting my favorite coffee in the entire world, Jamaican blue Mountain! If you wanted to try something very similar that cost considerably less this is it! If you want to practice on this before you order BlueMountain, great idea! Go Haiti 🇭🇹 and your Fine Haitian Organic Blue!

I think this is my wife’s favorite! She constantly ask for this! It was recommended by Kieth of Coffee Bean Corral. Kieth knows Jamaican Blue Mountain is my favorite, not one I can afford but a little bit as a treat for the holidays! He suggested I work my roasts up in practice for my favorite. This is very, very similar and much less expensive. But as I began, I think it is my wife’s favorite as she frequently asks for it by name!

I have been roasting beans for over 10 years and these are among my top two favorites. I understand that this cultivar is the same as Jamaican Blue Mountain. I would recommend a light roast on these to fully capture the mellow flavor of these beans. I end the roast about 10 seconds before first crack ends.

Really enjoyed this coffee. Definitely has the soft and smooth finish I was looking for in a Caribbean coffee. I bought the Dominican beans along with this one and started blending them. I think I'll stick to the Dominican instead since it's a little cheaper and has nearly the same profile to me.

Smells and tastes great! Full bodied, very smooth, with a pleasant aftertaste. Roasted beautifully to a dark roast espresso in a Gene Cafe roaster. Removed the beans when the 2nd crack began, and let the beans complete their 2nd crack outside the container, then stirred the beans in front of a fan for quick cooling. Brewed in a Breville espresso machine.

For those interested, Roasted in my Behmor at 1/2 P3 to 1st crack. P4 just through 1st crack. Very Quik Cool. An excellent single origin espresso, and pressed coffee. Recommended. To anonymous April 25, I've been roasting for years. Before moving on to a new bean, try playing with the same coffee in the Behmor a few more times.

Very nice, mellow, coffee. I used an old Hottop roaster and let it go to the end of first crack before dropping it to cool. Wait a full 48 hours for degassing of this bean so you can get the full effects of the roast. I took another batch into second crack, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME because it will turn out very oily and charred. I would definitely buy this one again.

It does have a very smooth taste, so for those who don’t care for a “bite” to their coffee or richer flavor, it’s a good recommendation. However, I prefer a deeper, rich flavor...with a “bite”. 😊

Use a Behmor roaster, roast 1/2# at P3 + 3:30. Brew with a Breville dual boiler. Cup starts sweet, full bodied with an aftertaste. Do not have a lot of experience since I started roasting 4 months ago but this is a bean I would purchase again. Will continue to look for a bean which meets all my taste desires.

This is an incredibly good, very mellow cup with a fantastic finish that for me lasted 15+ minutes. My go-to bean since I started roasting has been the Federlance Espresso Blend. To compare the two, this is definitely mellower/less bold with a slightly thinner (but still robust body). To me, this is even more balanced than the Federlance Blend and has a longer finish. If I had to stick with just 2 bean types, I would go with this when I wanted a more mellow cup and the Federlance when I was in the mood for a bolder cup. I use a stovetop popcorn popper to roast, roasted this to about halfway through the 2nd crack, and brewed with a French Press (using 12 tablespoons of rounds in a 1 L French press).
