Millions of Americans adore having coffee on a daily basis, and Cuban coffee is one of the most delicious beverages available. However, you can’t easily find Cuban coffee in general grocery stores. Not all coffee shops serve this coffee either. This type of coffee is very popularly known for its strong taste. If you want to buy it you must go to a certain region in the U.S. where most of the Cuban population resides. Indeed, coffee from Cuba is known for its fine texture and thus it has become one of the most adored coffees in the whole wide world.
People usually compare the Cuban coffee with espresso. However, it is derived from the combination of three different coffees originating from three countries i.e. from Cuba, Spain and Italy. When compared to American coffee, Cuban coffee is stronger in taste. This is why many people prefer to have it in little cups and they drink it after having a meal. These little cups are known as tacitas. The texture of this particular coffee mix is very dense and its color looks like thick mud. It has a tantalizing aroma and it has an amazing taste which may differ based on how much sweetener being added to it.
Cuban coffee beans are roasted until they turn blackened. This is why the coffee from Cuba tastes so unique. The coffee itself didn’t originate from Cuba, but rather it was brought to the country by the French. The first batch was brought in during the middle of eighteenth century. Soon Cuban coffee become more popular than sugar and it was recognized as the larger import product for Cuba. Due to the fertile condition of Cuba’s land and its effective production strategies, Cuba has grown into one of the biggest manufacturers for coffee.
Cuban coffee beans are mainly cultivated at the natural forestry grounds of Sierra Maestra. The process of plowing, sowing, harvesting and roasting are all done by manual labor. The growth of the Cuban coffee beans is dependent solely on organic fertilizers because no chemical substances are being used throughout their entire production process. Since no machineries and chemicals are used in the cultivation of these coffee beans, you can definitely consider them as an all-natural and organic product. This particular coffee is well-known throughout the Asian and European countries with the Japanese and French being the biggest importers.
The manufacturing of Cuban coffee is no different from the other coffees. The same goes with how to brew it. What you will need to have is purified water, a coffee pot, Cuban coffee beans (roasted and ground) and sugar or sweetener of your choice. You’ll just have to insert the coffee ground into the pot and add some water. Then, secure the lid of the pot and heat it. Remember to use a specific coffee pot that is heat resistant. When the coffee mixture comes to a boil, turn off the stove. Now you can pour the aromatic Cuban coffee into your tacita and then add sugar or sweetener of your choice.
