Historic Profile: In 1721, Monsieur de Clieu was ordered by King Louis XIV to cultivate Arabica coffee plants in the French Caribbean. After an arduous three month voyage where he fought off mutiny and sabotage one out of the three plants survived with the aid of de Clieus very own ration water. Guadeloupe's Bonifieur coffee was born! Guadeloupe Bonifieur is the ancestor to Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and is very rare. 'Bonifieur' in english means to 'improve' as in the past, it was used to enhance lower quality blends - today connoisseurs consider it to be one of the best coffees in the world.

Further research has led us to believe that Bonifieur is not only the ancestor to Caribbean coffee, but it also has strong ties to Central and South American coffees too! Although Jamaica's coffee industry thrives nearly 300 years later, unfortunately the same can't be said in Guadeloupe. Guadeloupe's coffee industry only produces a poultry amount due primarily to economic factors. Traditionally, Guadeloupe's Bonifieur coffee was bought by a select and exclusive clientele and FA Coffee is delighted to have exclusivity on one of the rarest and best coffees in the world.
