The best coffee is not that which is bought in stores, it is that which is planted, harvested, dried, roasted and ground with love. A handcrafted love. A love that comes from the neighborhood, among neighbors and friends who feel like family. When the coffee is brewed and the smell is felt, everyone gets together to enjoy that famous "buchito" of coffee. For me, the best coffee is the one made with love. I am talking about Cuban coffee.

I am Venezuelan, but I had the joy of mixing my blood with a Cuban and for the last 9 years I have been immersed in the culture of this wonderful people and now I feel as Cuban as I do Venezuelan. If I am in my country I miss the island infinitely and if I am in Cuba I miss my land and my people. My heart is divided in 2, so you can understand me.

Camagรผey's main street - Cuba

The first thing I did when I arrived in Cuba was to order a coffee and they surprised me with a Cafรฉ Solera a delicious combination of coffee with milk and red wine. It is one of the most delicious coffees I have ever tasted in my life. I loved it and wherever I went I asked for a Solera coffee, although I don't like to drink alcoholic beverages, I love this coffee.

But what was really extraordinary was when I arrived in town. When I stayed living in Cuba for 6 years and I could see the whole process that people do to have a good coffee on their table.

All the neighbors roasted and ground their own coffee and I loved to feel in the afternoon that delicious aroma that flooded the houses of the neighborhood.

I was able to take some pictures of my mother-in-law's neighbor, Mr. Eliseo, drying his coffee in the patio. Then I went with my husband to see the process of grinding it in a machine that he himself invented, the Cuban is very creative when it comes to solving problems. Once the coffee was ground, he invited us a cup of that bitter coffee with a Cuban flavor. I loved it! And I wanted to buy a kilo of coffee from him when I came to Venezuela to share it with my family since at home we buy coffee at the store.

So for me, the best coffee is the one that has feeling, that is served with love. That allows us to know a story, that makes us feel that we are part of the elaboration process and that delights us with its flavor and tradition. And I found it in my second home, in Cuba.

I invite @tere.alv and @gyp.karina11 to participate in this meeting International Coffee Day 2022

Hello @chacald.dcymt
I love Cubans. When I lived in Jamaica in my twenties, I loved hanging out at a Cuban cafe, and then years later I got the chance to spend a week in Cuba with a family who invited me on all their picnics to the beach. I explored old Havana and enjoyed the old architecture, old cars, and the simple way people lived happy and content, yet ambitious and always aspiring for something better.
Just this morning I had a Cuban coffee which was amazing.
I understand how you feel torn between your home country, Venezuela and Cuba. I felt the same about Jamaica for a long time... I regarded Jamaica as home, but now, my home is wherever I lay my head next to my husband:)

Very nice thought โ˜บ๏ธ...that's the way it should be. Our home can be wherever we are. I'm so glad you were able to get to know old Havana and enjoy a nice Cuban coffee. I love Cubans too, so much, that I married one and now I have a daughter who was born in camagรผey -Cuba...๐Ÿ˜Š We are a multicultural family ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บโ˜•๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ’œ.

Thank you for the support.

Cafรฉ Solera a... combination of coffee with milk and red wine.

That's a very interesting combination. It really makes me wonder what it's like. I may try to make it myself just to see.

the best coffee is the one that has feeling, that is served with love

So true. Very well said.
