This new Dominican Aged Natural is from the Ramirez Estate. Cafe Kreyol, in collaboration with Eddy Ramirez, together did a 24 hour fermentation on the coffee cherry, and dried on raised beds for roughly 15 days. Then, the coffee was stored as parchment coffee normally would be for 12 months. During that period, the coffee seed both absorbs fruit flavors and the cell walls become extremely stable, preventing the type of coffee aging that we are used to. As with other coffees from the Ramirez Estate, this entire project is both environmentally and socially conscious. Ramirez uses fermented coffee cherries to create a gas that partially powers his facility. All water used to wash coffee is filtered before returning it to the land, and he uses natural shade with trees that create nitrates for the soil on his biodiverse farm. In 2020, the first lady flew in to meet Eddy Ramirez and nationally congratulate him on producing the highest scoring coffee that has ever come out of the Dominican Republic. The Red Honey from Ramirez scored 92 in the Coffee review, and was #22 in the top 30 coffees of 2020. Ramirez Estate produces amazing coffees, and this is one to try!!

This coffee was extremely balanced and comforting. Roasted to about a dark-medium. Lovely note of cherry, stone fruit, and almost finishes with some caramel. Would definitely order this one again, we fell in love with it.

This is a special coffee. I have done a couple roasts so far and I found that roasting to the beginning of second crack is the sweet spot for me. Once roasted, the coffee needs a couple days rest because it’s pretty wild if brewed too soon.

Roasted 226g on a FreshRoast SR800 (stock chamber) like I would with a natural Ethiopian, reaching first crack around 6:30 and dropping after 45 seconds of a good rolling crack. Wow! Strawberry and cherry leap out of the cup. One of the best I’ve roasted so far this year. Shoutout to Claire at CBC for the recommendation. 👏

Roasted this to about 415°F in my Kaldi Fortis, and after only about a day of resting, the strawberry and cherry came through strongly in both aroma and taste. Then after the fruitiness there was indeed a faint cedary quality, followed by a sweet, smooth finish. Great balance in this coffee, and super delicious. I've never had such strong fruit notes from a caturra. It's no wonder this scored a 92. Will be ordering again.
