Dominican Pico Duarte
Direct Trade Organic Dominican Coffee from Spirit Mountain
Spirit Mountain coffee is grown on a 350 acre ecological reserve located high in the Central Mountain Range of the Dominican Republic. The plantation is certified organic and produces a very smooth Caribbean brew with good body, a milk chocolate, slight sweet & salty flavor with very mild acidity. The coffee is grown under a diverse multi leveled shade canopy that is home to many of the Dominican Republic’s many rare and beautiful endemic bird species.
Typica’ and ‘Caturra’ coffee plants can be found in abundance between 3,500 and 4,500 feet elevation on the Spirit Mountain plantation, where coffee is harvested using practices surpassing Fair Trade standards.
Coffee is processed using the popular wet process, washing the coffee in closed tubs. The coffee is then sun dried over the course of several days, until optimum humidity is obtained within the dried coffee bean, at which time, the coffee is transported to Jarabacoa for storage at ASCAJA’, a small farmer coffee cooperative, which is certified organic.
Improving the quality and diversity of the shade canopy of Spirit Mountain coffee farm began with devoting more resources to the rejuvenation of older coffee plants while planting new ones where older coffee plants had since died. Reforestation efforts have also included the reintroduction of native hardwood species that were either rare or non-existent in the region.
