Cuban Star

Smokey | Tobacco | Chocolate

Rated 4.9 out of 5

Think Cuban cigar....and you this this in a cup!

Long smokey tobacco notes, carried through with sweet, spicy chocolate

  • Region: Sierra Maestra mountain range

    Harvest: July - February

    Varietal: Typica

    Process: Wet Processed, Sun Dried

  • 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.

    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.

    • Espresso dose: 21 grams
    • Filter/plunger dose: 34 grams
    • Time: 30 Seconds
    • Temp: 90 degrees
    • Coffee-to-water ratio: 1:16 or 1:17

Jasper 5

20 years of this fabulous bean every day, so many friends and family, all our time in Melbourne and continuing here by post in Hobart. Can’t be persuaded to change because when you’ve found the world’s best then ridiculous to change.

Sticking with #10

We’ve tried other blends from Jaspers and other providers, but keep coming back to number 10. We go through about 1.5kg each month and love the rich flavour of this blend. It goes perfectly with our DeLonghi Dedica. Thoroughly recommended!

A regular in my house

This is a great, full flavoured coffee that is neither too strong nor too weak. It is my go-to coffee for my daily caffeine hit

Delicious Coffee

Great dark roast, added benefit that is it ethical and putting money in the pockets of female farmers. The only beans I buy.
