Coffee is undoubtedly the main export product sold by the country abroad. In the late 1700's Haiti was even responsible for half of the world's supply of coffee. Being small by territory, the country is considered the most mountainous nation in the Caribbean. Mountains are not good for most agriculture, but they create ideal conditions for coffee growing. The higher the altitude, the bigger and harder the bean, the better the coffee. Nowadays, Haitian coffee is making a comeback on the international market as one of the finest coffee in the Caribbean region, if not "the" finest.

Haiti exports clothing, scrap metal, vegetable oils, dates and cocoa. Haiti’s main exports partners are United States, Dominican Republic and Netherland Antilles.
