The national musical instrument of Haiti is the tanboo, a type of barrel drum. The oldest drums date back several centuries and are from old Haitian temples. The organic, versatile sound of the taboo can be used for dancing, general merry-making, and supposedly for healing, and according to professional drummers, the older the drum, the better the sound. Our Tanboo Caramel’s sweet, buttery flavor recalls the rhythms of the island and its people. The bright honey notes that enrich the milder taste of this medium roast evoke the spirit of a people who stand strong in the face any given challenges by dancing and singing to the sound of drums.
