Sourcing local coffee

While away on Guadeloupe, I’m taking time out to source a local supermarket for their coffee. Guadeloupe used to make lots of coffee for the European Continent but stopped due to competition. After WWII, production has slowly but surely increased again and farmers are more focused on producing higher quality Arabica and Robusta beans. But there’s also a local Bourbon variety that is sometimes added to produce and fuller bodied, round and subtle blend. I’m particularly interested in that variety which is imported from the other French colony Bourbon, off the coast of Madagascar.
