Cultivated organically, Cuban coffee is characterized as being very aromatic. It is not native to the country, however, it became famous because of the unbelievably high quality of the beans. One of the most popular areas to see the plantations or visit the coffee factories are the terraces of Pinar del Río or the Sierra del Rosario. Also, the Sierra Maestra mountains in Santiago de Cuba, where the first coffee plantations were planted has been declared a World Heritage Site. Some of the best-known brands are Turquino, Cubita or Serrano.
