SIERRA MAESTRA - 100% Arabica Coffee - Intensity 12 - Café Copium ®
The mountainous region of Sierra Maestra extends for 25 miles in the Southeastern part of Cuba, rising abruptly from the coast, where sand meets soil. Our variety of beans are rich and deep, with intense flavor, have licorice and molasses undertones that derive from similar topography and elevation. A taste of times gone by of this old region!
*Proudly served and sold at world famous El Siboney's restaurants in Key West.
Much misconception and misunderstanding arise when Intensity levels are discussed or described.
Simplistically, Intensity Levels refer to the richness and intensity of the aroma of the coffee when brewed or expressed and not to the caffeine levels.
Much like wine and chocolate the characteristics begin at planting. The soil, weather conditions and terrain have a lot of influence on the final intensity.
Harvest, storage, roast and overall production are as influential in the finished product we consume.
Here at Cafe Copium, we strive on perfection. Both brands, Cafés De Cuba & Cocaina Cubana, all have a unique profile and are on the strong intensity levels of 9 to 12.
The aromas are rich. Tasting notes are bold, smooth, low acidity and full bodied. Some have hints of bitterness creating a coffee experience with power and punch.
All are great as espresso but even better with any regular or plant based milk to create the perfect cup.
OMG the best Cuban coffee on the plant.
Nice and strong, perfect Cuban coffee.
Very unique cafe Cubano. Excellent power and flavor!
