The Isle of Cuba produces only Arabica Coffee. It is mainly grown in three areas, that is in the Eastern area (83%), in the Western area (6%) and in the Central area (11%). Cuba is the fourteenth largest coffee supplier in America and the thirtieth in the world.

According to the Tea and Coffee magazine, coffee production was introduced to Cuban society in the mid-18th century. By the year 1790, Cuba was a main exporter to Spain. By the 1820s, coffee production was contributing even more to Cuba's economy than sugar. In the years right before the Cuban Revolution (1956), Cuba was exporting 20,000 metric tons of coffee valued at $21.5 million and was producing its highest ever yield of coffee per acre (316.6 pounds per acre). With the Cuban Revolution came the nationalization of the coffee farms and the decline of the coffee industry in general.

Why the decline of the coffee industry? First, Cuba's economic downfall led to further migration to the cities and a weaker labor force available to the coffee farms. Second, in an effort to strengthen the coffee industry during the 1960s, the government aimed at developing a coffee growing belt along the outskirts of Havana by using a volunteer labor force. The program was unsuccessful and in order to redeem itself the government established yet another program in 1989 under the direction of Raul Castro, Fidel Castro's brother. The later program, known as the Turquino program, improved the agricultural infrastructure and offered agricultural workers better housing.

The name Extra Tourquino does not refer to an out-and-out production area, but rather stands for the trademark of the Cuban coffee. The brewed cup is distinguished by its intense aroma and sweetness.Its sublime sweetness has no equal. Slightly bitter and lightly acidic, it offers a rounded body with an elegant medium sweet taste. The scent is delicate and fragrant, with an aromatic flowery base, that creates an elegant aftertaste with pleasant caramel flavours. "sweet golden syrup nose and smooth, full bodied middle palate sliding into a rich soft finish. Cuba Lavado Extra Turquino is one of the best coffees I have ever tasted."
