The first coffee plantation appeared in Cuba in 1748. But the bigger cultivation started in 1789 by thousands of French coffee farmers that had to escape from the armed slave revolt in Haiti.
The majority of coffee in Cuba is grown in one of two regions – Baracoa in the south of the country, and in the Sierra Maestra Mountains, where this coffee is grown. Conditions in these areas lend themselves perfectly to the cultivation of coffee, with fertile soils and light trade winds creating a temperate climate for coffee trees to establish themselves in. Moderate altitudes create coffees with subtle acidity levels, but well-formed beans.
