Cuba

El café se cultiva en Cuba desde mediados del siglo XVIII. Impulsados por los agricultores franceses que huían de la revolución en Haití, las fincas de café se expandieron desde las llanuras occidentales hasta las cordilleras cercanas. La producción de café en el este de Cuba aumentó significativamente durante los siglos XIX y principios del XX.
El 92 por ciento del café del país se cultivaba en las zonas de la Sierra Maestra, especialmente en las copas de los bosques. La cosecha de café se extiende de septiembre a enero, con un pico en octubre y noviembre.

La isla produce granos arábica y robusta, y la mayor parte de la producción proviene de pequeñas granjas familiares. En 2003, Cuba comenzó a exportar café orgánico a Europa y Japón, con más de 4,000 hectáreas (9,900 acres) certificadas como orgánicas. Centrado en la parte oriental de la isla, el área produjo 93 toneladas métricas (103 toneladas cortas) de café orgánico que se vendía a precios un 40% más altos que el café cubano estándar.

Cuba

Coffee has been grown in Cuba since the mid-18th century. Boosted by French farmers fleeing the revolution in Haiti, coffee farms expanded from the western plains to the nearby mountain ranges. Coffee production in eastern Cuba significantly increased during the 19th and early 20th centuries.

92 percent of the country's coffee was grown in areas of the Sierra Maestra mountains, especially under forest canopies. The coffee harvest runs September through January, peaking in October and November.

The island produces both arabica and robusta beans, with most production coming from small family farms. In 2003, Cuba began exporting organic coffee to Europe and Japan, with more than 4,000 hectares (9,900 acres) certified as organic. Centred in the eastern portion of the island, the area produced 93 metric tons (103 short tons) of organic coffee that was selling at prices 40% higher than the standard Cuban coffee.

Languages

The official language spoken in Cuba is Spanish and it is the first language of about 90 percent of the entire population. Other languages spoken in the country include Haitian Creole, Lucimi, Galician, and Corsican.
