DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – EL NARANJITO
This coffee comes to us from the mountains around El Naranjito in the Dominican Republic in partnership with Celebrity Chef Jay Ducote and Lycoming College in Pennsylvania. The plants are shade grown and the farm is currently transitioning to organic certification, which we hope to see soon. The program with Lycoming college provides a market for the coffee from this farm as well as investment in land and equipment and education focused on increasing quality through enhanced farming practices and sustainability. We are honored to be a part of this partnership and opportunity to showcase a coffee from a region that isn’t traditionally known for its coffee. For more information about the story behind Jay D’s Single Origin Coffee and why it came to be, check out the story.
This coffee is roasted light to maintain the intrinsic and delicate nuances present in the roasted coffee.
