Havana Coffee is a New Zeland institution. In the last twenty five years, Geoff Marsland and Tim Rose have built a business, a brand and several ways of life around late-night coffee houses, importing Cuban coffee, setting up plantations in the Pacific and bringing Coffee U Feel to the people.
The Havana Coffee Story is a biography of a home-grown business success, from its beginnings in Cuba Street, Wellington to its current coffee empire status. A visual symphony of cars, cigars, cafes and coffee roasters. It is also a social history of Cuba Street and Wellington over the last three decades, with larger-than-life personalities, guts, determination and turf wars.
