The Dominican Republic boasts a wide range of distinct microclimates ranging from 600 to 1450 meters above sea level. Thus, the coffee, grown on the slopes of the mountain range, runs down the centre of the country where it benefits from year-round rainfall. Many of the farms are small and naturally organic. As the coffee grows in the shade, it exhibits a wide and varied range of flavours depending on where it is grown. Those grown at higher altitudes are more distinguished and well known for their rich flavours, heavier body and medium acidity.
Coffee was introduced to Cuba in 1748 and quickly became a huge industry. In fact, the majority of Cuban ground coffee grows in one of two regions, Baracoa in the south east, and the Sierra Maestra Mountains in the south, where the fertile soils and light trade winds create the perfect growing conditions. Typical flavours from these coffees are strong, dark and sweet with heavy body and rich aromas.
Costa Rica is famed for being the first Central American country to establish a coffee industry when Arabica coffee beans arrived direct from Ethiopia. But things really took off when William le Lacheur Lyon, a British captain, sent some of this coffee back to the UK. The rest is history! Thus, there are now 78,000 producers making coffee considered some of the very best in the world. Thanks to its growing conditions, these coffees have high acidity, fine silky body, with rich flavours and distinct aromas.
