Haiti won independence from France in 1804 to become the world’s first black republic. Since that time, they’ve been fighting for economic sovereignty. Coffee is a significant path towards this goal, where heirloom Arabica Typica coffee plants have produced rare, specialty coffee for centuries. Haiti was once one of the world’s greatest producers of coffee; Singing Rooster is helping put #haitiancoffee back on the map.
