At the back nine of 2015, it felt like Cuba was going to break wide open. A client wanted to be there when it happened. Their idea was to import the most exclusive coffee in the world that has been off limits until now. The big idea was to capture the mythical breeding ground when the beans were in heat and create a documentary that matched the new coffee brand and the place of their birth. We registered CrystalMountainCoffee.com to launch the film and the brand.
In October, the start of the harvest we made our way into the Crystal Mountain Preserve. Our documentary on the world's best cup is on hold until the political winds blow the elusive beans into the roasters of Miami.
For now, here is a short of our trip.
