Blind Assessment: Although this is not quite the deep, almost syrupy sweet Haitian coffee I recall occasionally tasting before Haiti's latest run of political misfortunes, it is a good coffee, and a very promising one, given the relative newness of the admirable Cafeieres Natives project. On the upside, sweet, ingratiating aromatics. Three panelists called these high, delicate notes floral; three others mentioned cocoa or chocolate; one mint. The more tactile aspects of the cup disturbed some, however. Two used the word "gritty"; one "muddy." I found the cup (with patience) rich, but opaque and without dimension or resonance.

Notes: Produced by a federation of 20,000 Haitian peasant farmers, this is a good, promising coffee with sweet, ingratiating aromatics. However, it was opaque without dimension, and muddy. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Haitian Bleu is the trademarked name for coffee produced by a federation of nearly twenty thousand Haitian peasant farmers called Cafeieres Natives. It is processed at over twenty newly developed wet mills.

Who Should Drink It:


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
