Dominican Republic Barahona AA
It has a rich aroma, and soft chocolatey taste. Medium body, sweet and citrus flavours, low acidity.
Coffee from the Dominican Republic has been known as a great coffee by connoisseurs for a long time.
With a climate unlike anywhere else in the Americas, the Dominican Republic gets rain all year around, with no one distinct rainy season.
The long coffee growing season here, is extended by the warm and gentle tradewinds and ocean currents which together with the moderate climate allows the coffee cherry (fruit) to ripen very slowly on the coffee plants producing a high quality coffee bean.
Coffee is picked almost all year round on the island, although the peak harvest period takes place from November to May, peaking in April.
The farmers actively promote sustainable harvesting using the most modern quality standards to preserve the rainforest and their community. Many Dominicans rely on coffee as a way of life which makes them strive to produce a great cup every time.
