The first coffee plantation appeared in Cuba in 1748. But the bigger cultivation started in 1789 by tousands of French coffee farmers that had to escape from the armed slave revolt in Haiti. These farmers established wide knowledge about farming and processing in matter of coffee.
The French coffee farmers grew coffee in Sierra Maestra. The climatic condition and the soil composition were ideal for coffee plantation and allowed and intensive development for coffee farming. The famous Altura quaility grows in the Sierra Maestra region and is named in the honour of the highest mountain peak of Cuba. Cuba Coffee beans offer great taste and value
