We’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Dominican coffees. This Cibao has a sweet smooth character with a soft acidity and velvety mouthfeel. Toffee and hazelnut notes in the finish. Overall it’s a very smooth & easy drinker.
In Cibao, located along the northern shores of the Caribbean Sea in the Dominican Republic. In this unique coffee growing region, at elevations ranging from 900 to 1,900 meters, some of the country’s finest coffees are grown. Due to Cibaos proximity to the North Atlantic ocean and an accidentally topography, coffee harvesting begins in August and finishes in February. Our coffee is grown at an altitude of 900-1,900 meters above sea level. The distribution of rain all year long and sunshine allows for 4-5 blooming of varying intensities which in turn makes coffee growers and pickers return five to six times, on average, to the same tree.
