Café Trinité, Coffee of the Caribbean, was a personally delivered gift directly from the Island of Trinidad. Hidden in its cloth sack, it will remind you of pirate booty and it is a prize indeed.
Trinidad, one of the jewels of the Caribbean, is an archipelago—meaning it is comprised of many islands. Trinidad is the main and most densely populated island and Tobago is second in line, although quite tiny in comparison. Trinidad is right off the coast of Venezuela in South America, a continent most noted as a major coffee producer with optimal conditions.
Weather in Trinidad and its accompanying islands have a dry and wet season. Dry from January to May with mild temperatures. Wet from May to December and cooler temperatures, but still relatively warm with an average of 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Even though these islands are located outside the hurricane belt, there have been a few that have managed to make the shore but minimal when you consider the hurricane history and damage on other islands.
According to the information on the sack, “Café Trinité Coffee is a taste of the Caribbean, a secret of the “Coffee Lady.” In the islands to sip from her cup is a real treat. She is the one who knows how to brew with a “sweet hand”… a touch of spice, a drop of rum, a measure of coconut cream, unique coffee flavor of the islands.”
Pre-ground coffee generally has a stale taste, but arriving in this silver vacuum-packed brick, the flavors and aromas were well-preserved. Rich and flavorful like cocoa with all of the above promised hints of spice, rum and coconut.
Visiting Trinidad while picking up your own sample would be an ideal way to procure this luscious combination of tropical delight, but if that is not in your budget, ordering Café Trinité online would be a very economical way to experience the island of Trinidad.
