Organic Dominican Republic Santo Domingo Coffee
Santo Domingo Coffee
"The Treasure of the Caribbean" and
"the best kept secret in coffee" are a few prized descriptions of coffee
from the Dominican Republic—and for good reason. Coffee is part of
everyday life in the Dominican Republic, and they celebrate their
commitment to its quality. Approximately 500,000 people in the Dominican
depend on coffee to make a living, yet many of these individuals live
in poverty. Still, the tradition of growing quality coffee has been
passed down from every generation for hundreds of years. Most Dominican
coffee is grown on small farms, and is cultivated especially well due to
the superior growing conditions of the island.
The climate here is different than any other coffee region in the Americas. Because of the warm ocean currents and trade winds, along with the rainfall that occurs year-round, the Dominican Republic produces a consistent coffee bean. The soils of the limestone and granite mountain ranges, where the coffee beans are grown, give Dominican specialty coffee its unique taste.
This Dominican Republic 'Santo Domingo' coffee displays a well balanced complexity and uniformity with a rich full taste, medium body and a pleasant acidity. You will find these "special beans" brew up a fine gourmet Caribbean coffee.
