Republic Jarabacoa - Dominican Republic
**ALL COFFEE IS ROASTED TO ORDER**
What does that mean? We want our customers to get the freshest possible coffee so we don't roast it until you order it.
This coffee comes from a certified organic single estate in the Jarabacoa region of the Dominican Republic. The Ramirez Estate employs over 400 people. Forty percent of the workers are women and many of them are Haitian migrant workers.
Workers are paid roughly 300 percent higher wages than Fair Trade standard, and the Estate uses a sizable portion of their profits to create sustainable gas recycling (to reduce emissions), water filtration (to prevent river contamination), and to donate computers and books to many of the local schools.
Country: Dominican Republic
Elevation: 1,400 meters
Cup profile: Smooth creamy body. Sweet undertones, butter, cream, and nuts. The finish turns to a sweet vanilla soymilk flavor. Exactly what you expect from an island coffee.
