The Background

The past few centuries have been a roller-coaster for the Puerto Rican coffee industry. First exploding during Spanish colonial rule in the 1800s, and then plummeting after being annexed by the United States in 1898. Despite the recent, sizable decreases in coffee production, things are starting to trend upward in recent years. The rise in demand for specialty coffee has allowed a number of persistent Puerto Rican coffee companies to build or rebuild their brands. El Coqui was started in 1986 and remains a family run business today.
