In that sense, the entity is promoting the donation of objects, documents, books, photographs and other elements related to the cultural universe of Cuban and international coffee by national public, and is prioritizing the preservation of tangible and intangible heritage.

Numerous Cuban poets, novelists, composers, historians, intellectuals and musicians have written about coffee, one of the most traded products in the world, which arrived in Cuba in 1748, and since then it began to take possession of the life, idiosyncrasy and customs of most of its inhabitants.

According to experts from the Office of the Historian of Havana, the initiative is relevant because it will make it possible to record the history of coffee growing from the ecological, archeological, architectural and industrial dimensions, as well as its identity within the deep and varied national culture.
