About

A delicious and mellow cup of true island organic coffee with sweet well-roundedness and a strong finish. This Organic Dominican coffee has very low acidity, making it easy to distinguish the sweet apple, grape and vanilla flavors throughout the cup. This USDA organic, Direct Trade coffee offering is a stunning example a of single estate tropical coffee.

The family who owns and operates this single estate farm in Cibao has made amazing contributions the the community by donating books and computers to local schools and helping Haitian immigrants obtain legal residence so they can be paid fairly. The operation is run by natural gas which is produced by fermenting the discarded coffee cherries.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Nov - Apr

Export
