Irving Farm Haitian Coffee

As part of the Haitian Relief Effort, Irving Farm Coffee Company will donate 100% of the profit from their new Reserve Select Haitian Highland Pic Macaya coffee to Konbit Sante, a Maine-based volunteer partnership working to save lives and improve healthcare in Haiti. The limited supply "in season" coffee is grown by small landowners in the Pic Macaya National Forest, one of only two national forests in Haiti. Bird friendly and wet processed in micro lots by coffee farmer Pievy Polyte, when roasted the beans create a dark coffee with hints of almond, chocolate and ripe fruit. The beans are sold to Irving Farm Coffee Company under Direct Trade guidelines. The coffee is available packaged in eco-friendly ½ lb bags. For additional products and ordering information visit
