CUBA

PROJECT #1​

BIO CUBA CAFÈ

Coffee production in Cuba has its roots in the very history of the product. French colonists in the 18th century who fled from Haiti brought the first plants and built the first cafetales. Since then, the culture of coffee and its production have been inextricably linked to the Cuban culture and economy​.
