The family-owned Ramirez estate, located in Ciabao, Dominican Republic, is known for its exceptional coffee, support of social programs, and care of the environment. The Ramirez estate's slow aged natural process takes over 8 months, allowing the fruit’s natural flavors and sugars to permeate the bean. This results in a deliciously sweet cup with a lovely balance of fruity and earthy flavors.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it.
