Revolution Fuels Haiti
In the year 1804 Haiti became the first black country in history to gain independence as a nation. After the Haitian revolution ended, they purchased their freedom from France primarily through the sale of Haitian coffee in Europe and the fledgling United States.
Today, in the pine tree covered mountain tops of Haiti a few families struggle to maintain their “creole gardens” where Haitian coffee is shade grown with loving care. These farms remain untouched by modernity which has uniquely preserved the rare heirloom coffee Arabica Typica plants that produce some of the finest and rarest specialty coffee in the world.
