More about Cuban Star

This is a good all rounder with great character, clean body and smoothness – the most exemplary thing about this coffee is its ability to carry its plum sweet tobacco body through milk. Because of its length and depth, it makes a great single origin espresso.

Region: Sierra Maestra mountain range

Harvest: July - February

Varietal: Typica

Process: Wet Processed, Sun Dried

An island of natural beauty, offering classic Caribbean landscapes of palms and beaches, Cuba is also renowned for its vast array of plants and animal species.

The country’s elongated and narrow shape facilitates the circulation of trade winds from the Atlantic, which cools its tropical, humid climate. Flat low lying plains account for approximately two thirds of the country and are primarily covered by sugar cane and tobacco plantations.

The remaining one third of the land is mountainous; the most dramatic range, the Sierra Maestra Mountain is home to some of the world’s finest coffee plantations.

    Great way to start the day

    Most mornings I am not that alert. My first coffee help the wake up process. Cuban Star for me is a nice mix of strong, tasty and smooth coffee. Not bitter, needing sugar, but just hits the spot nice and hot. Sorry no technical jargon, just I find it to be a great coffee.

    Good Cuban coffee

    It is now increasingly difficult to get Cuban coffee. Jasper is not the cheapest one, but (potentially) it may be better than the previous one I got…. Well, at least I feel great when I taste (maybe I always feel great drinking Cuban coffees).

    Not sure if it means to be like this: in my case, the stricter auto seal itself. Which is good of course.
