Montecristo, a sublime match for a Cuban cigar
Montecristo coffee, named after the well-known brand of Cuban cigars and of course the Count of Montecristo novel, has been specially created to perfectly accompany Cuban Cigars. But don’t think this Cuban coffee is only reserved for tobacco aficionados; instead consider it as a rare and high quality coffee that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
On the palate, the traces of tobacco, smokiness and a hint of caramel.
These special coffee beans are from only one plantation, located in Alto La Meseta, a 1000m peak in the Sierra Maestra, south eastern Cuba. The area is part of the Turquino National Park which was once famous for hosting more than 60 plantations in the hey day of Cuban coffee production before the Revolution because of its ideal location. Due to its high altitude and forest coverage, the coffee plants can grow perfectly, shadowed by tropical trees.
Montecristo is 100% Arabica organic coffee, which comes roasted and grounded in a sealed tin to keep in all its aroma.
