The boldness of Caracolillo Cuban coffee is distinguished by a rare combination of very intense aromas and a smooth texture as well as the unmistakable presence of dark chocolate notes.
CUBAN COFFEE CULTURE
The beautiful island of Cuba is part of a chain of underwater volcanic eruptions. This country boasts the largest number of endemic plants in the world, reaching up to 3,000 species. Many of its coffee plantations are found in forest and mountainous regions on very rich humus soil where production is laborious and the transport of coffee beans complex.
ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Caracolillo coffee beans proliferate in the heart of Cuba in a soil rich in mica and quartz on the plateaus of the Escambray mountain range commonly known as the Crystal Mountains. The peculiar characteristics of this soil, the moderate climate and frequent rains form an ideal microclimate for growing coffee. However, these small, round beans reminiscent of peas represent only less than 2% of the region's total production.
