Domestique Coffee beansA few years ago three friends set out across Haiti by bicycle and found a country that was welcoming and full of life. Today two of those friends run Domestique Coffee. Ayati, as it was called by the local people, means Land of Mountains. The rich soil and high altitude create a beautiful environment for growing coffee. And just like the Haitian people, the coffee has something magical about it that can’t be described by words. Passion is grown into this coffee. Revolution. Freedom. Domestique is dedicated to a fair wage supply line from production to distribution. We urge you, the consumer, to take an active role in knowing where your coffee comes from. Haiti was once known as the Jewel of the Caribbean and we believe it will hold that place in the World’s heart again.
