Danae (travel and beauty influencer) lives in the US, but she was born and raised in Cuba until she was 12, a country that still holds a dear spot in her heart. We were so excited to speak to her, to find out why she loves Cuba and what her favorite places are to visit when she goes back.
Cuban coffee, most commonly referred to as café Cubano, is one of the most well-known coffees around the world. The signature taste of the Cuban bean comes from a unique combination of the climate, altitude and soil of the Sierra Maestra Mountains, located in the eastern side of the island, where most of Cuba’s coffee is grown in small farms. With the rich soil and sub-tropical climate of the Sierra Maestra region, the coffee beans are able to grow organically, without the need of any artificial fertilizers or pesticides.
