Since Gregory Gourdet’s Haitian restaurant Kann opened in 2022, diners have been finishing their meals there with dessert accompanied by coffee and Haitian coffee cocktails. Now, the restaurant’s custom blend, made in collaboration with local Black-owned coffee shop Deadstock Coffee, is available for retail purchase.

Gourdet means to highlight Haiti’s global contributions by offering coffee from the Caribbean country, where half the world’s coffee supply was grown in the late 1700s. Kann’s Blue Mountain coffee beans are single-origin and grown fair trade in Haiti; they’re accentuated with a blend of spices including cinnamon, star anise, and vanilla bean. Bags of coffee come pre-ground and with brew instructions and a recipe card that details culinary uses like a coffee rub, barbecue sauce, or ice cream. The ten-ounce bags are priced at $30 and available for purchase directly from the website.
