Puerto Rico really does have the best coffee

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smooth and sweet is how Puerto Rican coffee is often characterized. Today however, many of us have to search if we want delicious coffee from this region. This is why I’m recommending 3 places to visit for Puerto Rican Coffee.

By the end of the 18th century Puerto Rico produced more than one million pounds of coffee a year. The island at one time was the world’s seventh largest coffee producer, declining after the United States annexed the island from Spanish control and focused on sugar cane production instead.
The good news is there’s been a resurgence of coffee production in the Cordillera Central Region where the nutrient rich volcanic soil produces coffee which is high quality. Several of the traditional coffee haciendas have been revitalized providing not only delicious coffee but tours of the facilities make for an informative and interesting day out. Here are three places to visit for coffee production in Puerto Rico.
