The persistence of the Pirate Utopia legend places this semi-mythical paradise on the island of St. Marie, close to the birthplace of coffee in the Madagascar / Reunion Island region. Therefore we assume that savvy pirates, who preferred coffee to rum historically, created blends from the local coffee shrubbery. Interestingly, there could have been dozens of indigenous species near them, including quite a few Robusta varieties.
This led us to theorize what pirates in a Pirate Utopia (dubbed Libertalia) who had the many options present in the birthplace of coffee might choose to create. Long Live Libertalia is gently flavored with all natural organic extracts of coconut, rum, pineapple and cardamom spice. Hard to describe, easy to fall in love with. We've had many requests to bring this one back, so here it is!
