Alma de Cuba, the soul and spirit of artisan Cuban coffee serves up its brand new Espresso/Cafecito darker roast.

Intense, bright but balanced, with wonderful silkiness and a lingering finish, Cafecito is Cuban for a ‘traditional strong, sweet espresso’.

Available in the new 225gm pack priced £5, Alma de Cuba Espresso/Cafecito roast is available as whole bean or a fine grind – ideal for espresso machines.

Up to the 1940s, Cuban coffee plantations were famed for producing some of the finest coffee beans money could buy. But sadly this changed. By 2012, Cuban coffee production was in what seemed like terminal decline. It looked like nothing could save it – until now…

Through a carefully built partnership with the Cubans, Alma de Cuba is working towards supplying Cuba’s mountain coffee farmers with the tools they need to help re-establish Cuba’s coffee crops once and for all.

Grown in the rich, fertile soils of the mountains overlooking the Caribbean – this is one of the best coffee-growing climates anywhere in the world.

Each young coffee plant is tended to each day by the mountain farmers – or ‘campesinos’ – who carefully harvest the precious cherries with un-gloved hands, ensuring each one is kept in perfect condition. These superb coffee beans, which haven’t been readily available for 50 years, are then batch roasted in small quantities and shipped to order.
