Blind Assessment: Soft aroma, with floral top notes, and prune- or apricot-toned fruit and a hint of chocolate. Simplifies in the cup, turning gently bittersweet. The deep-toned, prune-like fruit grows more pungent, the chocolate hints drier. Smoothes out again in the impressively sweet, finish.
Notes: Haitian Bleu is the trademarked name for a coffee produced by a large federation of Haitian peasant farmers called Cafeieres Natives. Coffee Masters is an influential, quality-oriented wholesale roaster located in a Chicago-area suburb. Visit
Who Should Drink It: No aromatic fireworks certainly, but a smooth, deep-toned option for those who prefer a soft, low-acid cup.
