Dominican Org. Ramirez Estate – Washed Processed

(2 customer reviews)

New Crop! Regular Price $8.19/Lb
A great medium to dark roast coffee: robust, fuller bodied, lower acidity and complex. Rich and smooth with nutty, chocolate, earthy and spice tones. On the lighter roast spectrum there is a little jazzy citric note that presents the cup a little sweeter, on the darker roast spectrums it will have some roasty and smoky notes that we found quite pleasant.

Description

In 1943, Mr. Belarminio Ramirez started a small company dedicated to the cultivation and marketing of coffee, which over the years grew into a family tradition involving three generations already. The Belarminio Ramirez Group was named in his honor. Currently, the company owns 350 hectares of coffee production, located in the mountains of the central range between 800 and 1500 meters above sea.

This family-owned estate is extraordinarily socially conscious. They use fermented coffee cherries to create natural gas, which partially powers their operation. They also donate books and computers to the local schools, and in a more rural area, they built and funded a new school preventing small children from having to walk over 15 km each way to class. They also help Haitians obtain legal residence in the Dominican Republic, in order to receive fair wages. We pay roughly 300% higher wages to this Estate for their exceptional care of the environment, organic certification, care for local Haitian immigrants, and high cupping scores.

This coffee comes from a single estate in the Jarabacoa region of the Dominican Republic. The Ramirez Estate employs over 400 people. 40 percent of the workers are female and many of them are Haitian migrant workers. They are paid roughly 300 percent higher wages than Fair Trade to the Estate and they use a decent 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. This estate is an example of how a coffee businesses that becomes successful should operate in their community.

Tasting Notes:
A great medium to dark roast coffee: robust, fuller bodied, lower acidity and complex. Rich and smooth with nutty, chocolate, earth and spice tones. On the lighter roast spectrum there is a little jazzy citric note that presents the cup a little sweeter, on the darker roast spectrums it will have some roasty and smoky notes that we found quite pleasant.

Roasting Notes:
A wonderful bean screen, even and easy roasting, medium to low chaff. Make sure to play around with the roast on this one, light to dark a tasty cup but pretty different. Lighter roasts you get sweet with more delicate tastes, dark you get strong and complex. A nice medium roast is where we settled on being our favorite but a bean everyone will love it at slightly different roasts.

This is a project coffee from Cafe Kreyol, our buddy Joey has been working with Ramirez Estates on premium chops and awesome processing methods to ensure a premium and unique product. Cafe Kreyol goes into some of the most impoverished and troubled areas that are within prime coffee growing territory, organizes farmers, teaches how to correctly process beans, guarantees purchase of the beans at way above market prices ensuring it goes directly to the farmers and strives to really turn around some of the more troubled areas, putting people to work at well above average wages and ensuring future livelihoods.

Joey, the head of Cafe Kreyol, even strives for his US employees the above statement. He finds the hardest working individuals with great work ethics that for one reason or another have really been put down with employment and troubled times to help them recover and build a resume while also being able to help others.

One can feel really good about supporting any of Cafe Kreyol’s projects and for the most part – really tasty coffees as well.

    I ordered some of these beans on a Wednesday (after business hours) and received them on Saturday of the same week. Needless to say they shipped quickly. In my humble opinion the beans are of great quality. I say this because I have ordered Organic Ramirez Estate green beans from another company before and the beans looked like they had been sitting in a warehouse too long (small dark spots on some of the beans and the color didn’t seem right). Most of the green coffee beans I buy are from a local business but they don’t sell Dominican beans, so I get them online. Those beans (the ones I buy locally) are very fresh, devoid of spots or discoloration. I was really stoked when I saw that the beans I ordered from Bruman Coffee appear to be very fresh as well (no spots or discoloration of the beans).

    We’ve roasted these both medium and dark, and both are incredible. Great also to find a bean that’s stunning at very different roasts.
