Single origin Dominican coffees are difficult to find. Even coffee that is marketed to have a Dominican origin is often imported from other nations. We have set out to change that. We work directly with farmers in the Dominican Republic and select the best coffees they have to offer for your enjoyment.
In 2013, the Dominican coffee crop was devastated by an outbreak of Coffee Rust, a fungal disease that destroys coffee plants. This resulted in catastrophic losses for nearly two million Dominican farmers, many of which were small producers or seasonal workers in rural areas. Our commitment is to offer coffees grown in the various regions of the Dominican Republic in support of these farmers.
The time has come to bring the Dominican Republic back to the forefront of the coffee world.
