Often referred to as "The Treasure of the Caribbean," this organic coffee from Santo Domingo (the capital city) is definitely one of the best kept secrets of the region. Many people in Santo Domingo make a living from the production of coffee, which is why strict measures are taken to ensure quality and standards are upheld. Most coffee is grown on small plantations and the farmers tend to be more devoted to their trade and their families.
The climate in The Dominican Republic is ideal for coffee trees because the island is surrounded by ocean on three sides, which brings about cool trade winds and cloud cover that protects the trees from excessive sunlight. With the Caribbean winds, the humid environment, and an average temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit the coffee trees mature at a slower rate, which produces a stronger, bolder flavor. The unique tastes exhibited by the coffee come from the rich soil of the mountainous regions in which the trees are planted. Our Dominican Republic "Santo Domingo" coffee has a great medium-body with a well balance flavor.
