Haiti – Green
|Review Date:||July 1998|
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.
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.
