This coffee comes from a certified organic single estate in the Jarabacoa region of the Dominican Republic. The Ramirez Estate employs over 400 people. Forty percent of the workers are female and many of them are Haitian migrant workers. Workers are paid roughly 300 percent higher wages than Fair Trade standard, and the Estate uses a sizable portion of their profits to create sustainable gas recycling (to reduce emissions), water filtration (to prevent river contamination), and to donate computers and books to many of the local schools.

Dominican Republic Jarabacoa Region

Elevation: 1,400 m above sea level

Varietal: Caturra

Process: Washed, Rotating Dryers

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

Roasting notes: While this a good coffee for a medium roast, it is definitely one for the darker roast lovers looking for something a bit more exotic and complex. A darker roast will bring out the chocolaty and earthy undertones.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

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.
