Viva la Revolución – Cuban Alto Lavado
Processing: Fully washed
In Cuba the export has been regulated by the government for many years. Hence, this is the only exporter and all the coffe goes through this organisation. Coffee can not (yet) be sourced directly from individuals.
This Cuban Alto Lavado coffee grows on the particularly steep slopes of mountain chains, at an average altitude of 800 to 1200 meters above sea level.
Plantations are managed by state-owned cooperatives who never use artificial fertilizers. Control and development of the plants are done with care and importance is placed on maintaining and expanding natural growing methods.
This coffee is well-balanced, sweet and clean body. Honey and citric lemon flavours combine with a subtle buttery aftertaste.
