Perfect for

A rich, robust cup of coffee with smokey notes - perfect for any time of the day

  • 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.

Rapidly becoming my go to coffee!

Cuban Star is a wonderful way to start the day. It consistently delivers great shots that work well with the milk based coffees I enjoy.
