Coffee & Spices

We did the Western itinerary on the Glory last July, but missed Mahogany Bay & Belize due to the weather. So...I've convinced DH that we really need to see those ports for his birthday this coming May Wink. I'm a foodie and would love to pick up some items when we go back. We'll be hitting Grand Cayman, MB, Belize & Cozumel. Any suggestions on good coffee or spices that would be good to get from these ports?

Thanks in advance and happy cruising!!

DH and I both love coffee, so when we saw one pound burlap bags of it in a port shop in Belize, we bought some to bring home. We were really disappointed because it had very little flavour. I think it must have been sitting there for quiet some time. Hope you have better luck.

I don't drink coffee but i have purchased several Rum Cake in boxes that all my recipients loved. They said the small cakes were so moist and flavorful.

We've never bought the rum cakes as gifts because we can buy the same Tortuga rum cakes right here in local stores like Marshall's. Same with the coconut wafer type candies made in Orlando - Marshall's has them all the time. It's a small world.

Somehow, those little Tortuga Rum Cakes always seem to be jumping into my suitcase during the last night of the cruise. Big Smile

I don't think of coffee when in the Caribbean, I think of rum.

I don't know -- that blue mountain blend is pretty good.

The only coffee we bought and were happy with was the coffee we got in Hawaii. The stuff from Columbia at the market was crap, just packaged for tourists. I'm a sucker for tacky souvenirs and bought some. Other stops on that cruise also had coffee, but as it was explained to us, the really good stuff is exported.


My sister brought us some great coffee and volcanic salt from Hawaii last year, and I'm sure hoping she does the same this year. Wink

Does anyone know if there is good coffee in San Juan or St Maarten?
