PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A high-end Canadian hotel chain will soon be lending a hand to Haiti's coffee farmers.
The private foundation of former U.S. President Bill Clinton says Four Seasons Hotels Inc. will begin serving coffee exported from Haiti this fall in its New York and Toronto branches.
The coffee is grown in the mountains surrounding Thiotte, a remote village southeast of Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.
The Clinton Foundation also announced it has teamed up with a fair trade group and a Canadian foundation to launch the Haiti Coffee Academy. This will provide training, tools and other resources to help improve the quality of Haitian coffee.
Haiti was once a major coffee exporter but that ended because of decades of political instability.
The Clinton Foundation made the announcement Tuesday.
