Gabriel Mathiew de Clieu, a French Naval Officer, played the most vital role in the intriguing history of Mexican coffee. De Clieu managed to acquire a descendant of a coffee tree given to King Louis XIV of France, and he made it his duty to take the tree to his estate on Martinique.
This miraculous tree survived Tunisian pirates, violent storms, dangerously covetous passengers, and a deficit of fresh water.
De Clieu even went as far as sharing his very own water ration with the protected plant. It arrived safely in Martinique and while under 24 hour surveillance, including its own armed guard, it grew and flourished in the tropical environment, supplying seed directly and indirectly to all countries of the Americas - including Mexico.
