Speaking about Guadeloupe Bonifieur Coffee at RSLOM

We recently set out on a trip to the French capital on a sunny Tuesday morning. Carib Gourmet’s founder Vanessa Bolosier presented the authentic Bonifieur, Guadeloupe’s highly regarded coffee, which is roasted from the finest coffee beans to have ever been cultivated throughout the Caribbean.

Upon our arrival, at the RSLOM event at the 6th District Town Hall, we were unexpectedly greeted by some pretty high level MPs and officials from the French overseas regions.

Vanessa’s presentation focused on how small planters benefited from cooperative initiatives and sustainable development. Issues such as climate change were also covered, which were followed by a reportage which showcased the different processes of harvesting the Bonifieur coffee; which she had documented during her previous visits to Guadeloupe coffee plantations. Special thanks to Mrs Maximin  of the RSLOM for inviting us to this wonderful event and we look forward to coming back again next year.
