Puerto Rico Coffee History

Coffee was introduced to the «New World» in 1723 to the Caribbean Island of

Martinique by a Frenchman. It is said, to be the primary source of most if not all of

today’s Arabica bean coffee trees in the New World. Shortly thereafter, in 1736, it was

brought into the island of Puerto Rico, because of the ideal geographical location, soil

conditions, mountainous terrain and unique soil conditions favorable for growing

coffee. It soon became a major export produce to Europe, and one of the most

important cash crops on the island. Eventually, Puerto Rico developed into one of the

worlds most important producers of fine coffee, a status which it lost, after the

devastation of its coffee crop by several major hurricanes. Nonetheless, coffee

cultivation and production has survived and is heavily treasured by many.

It has been said, that the word coffee, «café», in Spanish, derived from the word

«qahwa», which means wine. But it has also been said that the word originated from

Caffa, a province of Abyssinia. However, when coffee reached Europe in the beginning

of the 17th century, it was called the «Wine of Arabia», for the exhilarating sensation that

it produced in whomever consumed it. It has several medicinal attributes, among

these, the suppression of asthma attacks, treatment of heart disease, ascites, pleuritic

disorders, it is a powerful diuretic, a mild laxative and popularly used today, for

inebriety. The leaves of the coffee trees contain the most caffeine and has been used

for infusions. The amount of caffeine in coffee is dependent of the amount of roast it

has been subjected to. The darker the roast the less caffeine it will have.

In the Caribbean islands of Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Haiti & the Dominican Republic,

coffee is typically grown at altitudes ranging from 1000 to 3500 ft. and higher. It is

processed by the traditional 24 hr wet fermentation, wash & 5 to 7 day sun drying

method. It possesses a characteristic gentle flavor of the region in which they are

grown, is softly or agreeably acidic and typically medium to dark roasted to enhance

its hint of cocoa like flavor & pleasant palatable after taste, making it a favorite

morning and after dinner coffee. Some coffee beans, particularly the peaberry or

«Caracolillo» taken from the Spanish word «Caracol», which translates into seashell (the

shape of the the single lobed coffee bean), is dark roasted to bring out its inner

secrets. Jamaica and Puerto Rico have the rich bauxite soil and geographical location

suited for coffee growing. This makes Jamaican Blue Mountain & Puerto Rican coffee

very similar, in terms of texture, taste & quality. In terms of costs, however Puerto Rico

is the best deal. In the early 20th Century, Puerto Rican Coffee, was served in official

state dinners at the White House, by the devout coffee lover, USA President, Theodore

Roosevelt, who termed it as «Grand»,  and The Coffee of Popes & Kings by the Roman

Catholic Vatican Church. Casablanca Coffee win the frst place on 2010 for the best

artisan Puerto Rican Coffee.

Jamaican Blue Mountain in much of the market in Japan, after its coffee production

was crippled due to hurricane damage. It has remained as a preference to once

Jamaican clients and it is currently served in many of the finest restaurants of Japan,

recapturing its rightful place in the world, as one of the best coffees.

Specialty Coffee Brands to Taste in Puerto Rico

Check out the coffee of “popes and kings” while in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rican coffee has over 200 years of history. Some historians believe it was first introduced to the island in 1736 by the Spaniards, who found the mountainous region perfect for harvesting coffee plants. Others ascribe the arrival of Arabica beans to a Corsican monk that emigrated to Puerto Rico – also in the late 1700s – in search of a better life.

Regardless of who introduced the fruit, the first coffee beans were sown in Puerto Rico by the end of the 18th century, and coffee quickly became an economic driver. The demand was such that even the pope requested Puerto Rican coffee, giving it the reputation of being the coffee of «popes and kings.» Even the Royal Courts of Europe tasted Puerto Rico’s cupped lighting.

What makes Puerto Rican coffee stand out is a combination of where it is grown and how it is processed. The island’s volcanic soil, as well as the coffee being grown at altitude (up to 3,500 feet above sea level) and in the shade, bring out those extraordinary flavors.

The process of gathering and roasting the beans brings out the specific attributes of the coffee while maintaining very high-quality standards.  

Aroma and flavor: Puerto Rican coffee has sweet nuances that highlight chocolate undertones and dry fruit notes. In your cup, you can detect hints of almond, plum, and other nuts, but the predominant flavor will always be chocolate.

Texture and kick: The «body» of the coffee feels very rich and supple. The coffee has an acidity that gives it subtle notes of citrus, but is not bitter.

If you’re looking to sample local coffee brands that are 100% Puerto Rican-grown beans and held to the highest standards of production, here are a few to check out while you’re on the island.

Café Don Ruiz


A fourth-generation coffee hacienda nestled in the mountains of Yauco, Café Don Ruiz’s specialty gourmet coffee is single harvest, hand-picked, and hand-sorted.

There you can enjoy traditional preparations like an espresso or a latte or try different kinds of brewing and pour-over methods. This is a «must stop» for every coffee lover.

The coffee at Cuatro Sombras is roasted weekly in their on-site micro-roaster. The name Cuatro Sombras (Four Shades) comes from the practice of harvesting coffee under the shade of four different types of trees: pacay, guama, dragons blood, and muskwood. Be sure to pair your cup of joe with their iconic guava butter toasts or any of their freshly baked pastries.

Harvesting and Processing Specialty Gourmet Coffee

Puerto Rican coffee goes through a meticulous process before it can be poured in a cup:

  1. Once the coffee cherries are hand-picked from the plant, they are sorted, and the ones that are caritostados (sundried) are discarded.
  2. The coffee cherries that are 100% ripe are thrown in a machine to be separated by color and size.
  3. The freshly harvested cherries are passed through a pulping machine to separate the skin and pulp from the bean.  
  4. The beans are dried out with one of two methods: they are either thrown in a net to sun-dry completely or tossed in a machine that simulates sunrays.*Fun fact: The most commonly used coffee toasting machine was invented in Puerto Rico and perfected in Colombia. These machines dry up to three layers of the bean.
  5. When the bean’s humidity is down to 10%, the seeds are left to rest for up to three months. If they are processed immediately, the beans lose their unique properties.
  6. Once again, the coffee beans are sorted by color, size, and weight. They go into a milling machine that removes the hulls. The milled beans are known as green coffee.
  7. The exposed beans are examined for flaws or imperfections.
  8. The coffee beans are roasted to a medium finish and sent to be packaged or ground for consumption.

Fun Facts about Specialty Gourmet Coffee

  4. Puerto Rican coffee is sweet and creamy, and experts suggest it is better enjoyed black and without sugar.

If we talk about such a category as «top ten coffees», then Puerto Rico takes its rightful place in it, and is positioned as one of the most expensive varieties in the international coffee market.

For a long time Puerto Rico coffee was preferred by the Pope. But in the sixties of the twentieth century, coffee exports ceased as the plantations died and coffee production was discontinued. The Vatican, and with it a large army of fans of Latin American arabica coffee lost Puerto Rico coffee .

Today, the perfectly balanced Puerto Rican coffee , with its sweet chocolate taste, almost no bitterness, and light citrus sourness, is reborn.

The island of Puerto Rico is located in an amazing place on the planet, about which many theories, hypotheses and illusions have been created. Disappeared planes, ships, crews abducted by aliens, time portals, exits to other galaxies — the Bermuda Triangle.

Puerto Rico coffee is grown in the famous anomalous zone . The climatic conditions, the soils of this part of the Caribbean are so good that the coffee is of the highest quality of the “specialty coffee” class. Tropical, altitude over 1000 meters, no chemical fertilizers, modern scientific, technical and agricultural innovations — as a result, Puerto Rico with unique characteristics.

The scent of Puerto Rico is like the breath of the ocean, rich, bright, enveloping and gentle at the same time. Harmony of shades, aftertaste of spices. Puerto Rico is a decent, gourmet coffee, and a great alternative to Jamaica Blue Mountain, especially since they are neighbors.

The cost of coffee is much higher than the average price for this drink. There are several reasons:

  • The wages of workers and farmers are noticeably higher than in other countries of the coffee industry. Puerto Rico has United States minimum wage laws.
  • Selected coffee is scarce, and it goes mainly to premium and luxury blends.
  • Unscrupulous suppliers and sellers replace it with low-grade lots, posing as real Puerto Rico.
  • Mono Puerto Rico coffee is a rare guest in stores. It is bought to Japan, America, Italy. But today, genuine Puerto Rico has begun to appear in Russia.

Puerto Rico is a coffee worth trying.
