More about the coffee and where it comes from….

The Dominican Republic produces between 350,000-500,000 sacks of arabica per year, however less than 20% of this volume is exported due to very high internal domestic coffee consumption. The country has a coffee culture stretching back over two centuries, and consumption is 3kg per-capita ! 

Dominican coffees are surprisingly diverse. The country’s six growing regions - Cibao, Bani, Azua, Ocoa, Barahona and Juncalito - have been officially nominated by the government to better promote the individual profiles of the coffees from these distinct microclimates. However there may be as many as 25 distinct production zones around the island, centred on its four mountain ranges.

Most coffee on the island grows at between 600 and 1,450 metres above sea level. Given the extreme diversity of the island’s microclimates and topography and the near constant humid conditions, coffee is picked almost all year round at one place or another on the island, although the peak harvest period takes place from November to May, peaking in April around the Semana Santa (Holy Week) festival.

Farms in the Dominican Republic are typically small – on average less than three hectares each – and much of the coffee is cultivated organically, though many farms are not officially certified. The majority is also shade-grown, often under a canopy of pine, macadamia and guava trees.

Barahona is a province located in the south west of the island, around three hours drive from the capital of the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo. Barahona is widely considered to be the finest producing region. The coffee is grown at high altitudes and is renowned for its rich flavour, heavier body and good acidity.
