Haitian Bleu

By way of Bob Corbett’s excellent mailing list, I find that Haitian Bleu coffee has a website and an online distribution channel by way of Gourmetmagic.

I picked up some Haitian Bleu this summer while in Washington D.C. for the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival. It’s a very good coffee, with a different taste entirely from the typical Starbucks-type Arabica variant, and the color of the crushed beans is an orangey-brown, not the deep brown of my usual blend.

The company claims to employ the efforts of some 18,000 Haitians, so buying some Haitian Bleu is an excellent way to support the Haitian economy.
