A Brief History
Cibao is the main cultivating region in the Puerto Plata region of the country. Huge exports from this area started to take off in 1872 and was a booster for the small farmer economy that dominates production style. Most lots are single family owned and we, in particular, use the Ramirez estate out of Jarabacoa. A beautiful regions in the middle of the country. A lot of Dominican farms utilise Haitian labor due to the lack of jobs in Haiti, which helps the entire Isle of Hispaniola.
A Taste of Dominican Republic
The Ramirez estate in which we work with is highly socially conscious. They use their fermented coffee cherries to produce natural gas that powers their entire operation! With this in mind, they highly value the concept of quality in everything they do, which shows in their beautiful processed Red Honey coffee that we so happen to offer.
