Barahona Paraiso Coffee - Paradise in a Cup
Barahona Paraiso Coffee is a fabulous medium strength cup, that is rich and smooth with the most incredible aroma. Here you will find a coffee with mild acidity, delicious malty notes and ripe fruit flavours, that takes its name from Paraiso, a town in the Barahona Province of the Dominican Republic. With its idyllic beaches, deep turquoise sea, lush mountains and cool, clear rivers, it’s little wonder it was named ‘Paraiso’, the Spanish word for ‘paradise’. The Barahona area is renowned for producing the highest quality Arabica coffee beans, that grow at high elevations in a tropical climate and benefit from average temperatures of 85°F with ample rainfall, allowing coffee to be produced throughout the year.
Coffee seeds are thought to have been brought to the Dominican Republic from Martinique, by Spanish colonists in the early 18th century. Today, coffee is produced over six regions of the country, being the main crop cultivated on thousands of smallholder farms. Coffee is a well-loved beverage of the inhabitants of the Dominican Republic, and most of the coffee produced is consumed domestically, with just around twenty per cent of it being sold for export.
Barahona Paraiso is suitable for use in bean-to-cup machines and cafetières, and is perfect for strong filter coffees and full bodied espressos.
