Ramirez Estate Bio: In the Dominican Republic, the family-owned Ramirez Estate run by the third generation employs over 400 workers who live and work on the property and make nearly 300% higher wages than Fair Trade Standard. Before the Ramirez family purchased the land in the early 1990s, the land was impotent and bare––natural water springs had long since dried up and farmers had only been raising cattle.

Today, the Ramirez Estate is one of the most environmentally-progressive and socially-conscious proprietorships in the world because they recycle materials used during coffee bean processing. First, coffee cherry parts that would normally be thrown out are converted into natural gas through fermentation––in turn, this natural gas powers their facility. Next, the used water is also recycled, filtered, and returned to water systems. Lastly, cherry pulps are added to a compost pile where they’re used as fertilizer useful to nearby farms.

In addition to creating exceptional coffee, the Ramirez Estate also gives back to its community in countless ways. By building schools in rural areas, local children no longer have to walk nearly twenty miles a day, and after donating books and computers, students have more opportunities to learn. The Ramirez Estate also allows other farmers in the Dominican Republic to use their processing plant to assist in coffee export.

The pictures seen on our website are part of our personal experience touring the estate and meeting the Ramirez family––they are humble, honest, and produce some of the highest-scoring coffees we carry.

Washed: This complex washed-processed coffee is dried with unique rotating dryers, and it comes from the certified Ramirez Estate in the Jarabacoa region of the Dominican Republic. It’s grown at 1,400 meters above sea level with an arabica variety of caturra. Within its process, the Ramirez Washed bean holds the inner workings of the cherry in highest regard––the layers of fruit are stripped, and cherries are almost immediately de-pulped through drying to give the coffee a clean, robust flavor––there is little to no fermentation.

Cupping notes: Smooth creamy body. Sweet undertones, butter, cream, and nuts. The finish turns to a sweet vanilla soy milk flavor. Exactly what you expect from an island coffee.

Really liked this bean. Roasted it to partially into the second crack. the aroma on this bean is incredible after 5 days. Brewed it as a batch cold brew for 24 hours which creates a nice concentrate. I mix that at a 3 to 1 ratio hot water to concentrate and it makes an incredible cup.

This bean has a very good taste at a medium roast, just a few snaps into second crack. Not very good tasting at a lighter roast. Excels in taste and flavor when blended with a Robusta. I use about 20% India or Vietnam Robusta beans in the blend. Amazing how this boosts the taste .

A fantastic medium roast coffee! Great balance of flavor and smooth finish. Earthy, full bodied. No notes of fruit (which I prefer)

Whoa, Nellie--this is a keeper. Too much going on here to try to describe...and I don't agree on the "soymilk finish" note of our Corral bean-wranglers...but golly...wow. THIS is one of the sets of flavors I started home roasting to get fresh. I like a complex, strong, solid-bodied coffee but not smoky or overly bitter-earthy. At 12 seconds into 2C for me, this one is low and wide. But there are also upper layers, including one that reminds me of chewing on the new soft needle tufts of Doug-fir in the spring, and ripened, slightly fermented Rugosa rose hips. Plus a charming sweetness like Pennsylvania German unpulled molasses candy, but not at all cloying. So I tried comparing this coffee to Dominican baseball players and came up with Pedro Martinez. Strong but also with finesse, solid, and versatile. Thanks, CBC!

I'm a big fan of Jamaican beans but this bean fills the spot at a fraction of the cost. To me it is similar to Jamaican but has a nice earthy finish at full city/full city+. One of my new favorites. As a reference for my preference, I "usually" alternate my morning caffeine between this, Kenya AA and Guatemala Bella Carmona Antigua before switching to Bali Hai decaf.
