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 soy milk 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!

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 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.
