Haiti | Zombie Desert

$19.99

This Haitian Blue coffee is named after a coffee-growing mountain town in Haiti, Savane Zombie, where urban legend holds that witch doctors used to raise the dead to do their bidding. The island soil it’s grown in preserves many of the bean’s unique flavors and it’s low in acidity, creamy, smooth with an exceptional nutty taste.

So why a zombie soldier from the French revolution on this Haitian coffee label? We want to spark your interest to learn more about Haiti’s very difficult relationship with coffee, and celebrate the incredible strength & resilience of the Haitian people. In 1804, Haiti, the world’s first Black republic and only country born of a successful slave revolution, won its independence from France. But until the revolution began in 1791, Haiti actually produced 50% of the world’s coffee through the extreme exploitation and systematic violence of slavery. Simply put, we can’t fully appreciate the history of coffee without an appreciation and understanding of coffee’s origins in Haiti.

That is the highest score to ever been given to a Haitian coffee. Through a model farm at the co-op, members and potential members are trained to maximize quality and quantity. This cooperative, being smaller in size, is able to produce 600 bags of coffee per year, and pay growers significant prices for their coffee cherries. The cooperative is paid roughly 300% higher wages than the Fair Trade minimum, not out of charity, but for having an exceptional product.Mariane is one of the leaders of Savane Zombie cooperative and is extremely dedicated to the craft of growing, processing, and brewing coffee from seed to cup.
