    Thought the same. Good local coffee for much less. But thanks Bob. I would double check and make sure it is not counterfeit.

    I could import it myself 3 pounds at a time for about that price and not have to go out shopping for it. Not that I ever would since I like tea better. And I cannot see a reason for liking Starbucks over DR coffee, but for those of you who do like it that is good news even at 600 pesos a bag. Are you sure those are not 12 oz bags?

    They may be 12 oz as they are larger than SD coffee bag.I have single serve Keurig machines and have imported the kcups of Starbucks as well as dunkin donuts as I like them ,I like SD coffee too,but not strong enough

    If they discover coal in the DR let's pool resources to extract it and export it to Newcastle.

    Speaking of Newcastle, I'd love to find some of their ale here...

    forget santo domingo coffee. we drink monte alto or monte real here and those are much better. i only put my paw on CB's family coffee once so i do do list it here...

    it would be quite interesting to try other coffees, i have not had non-dominican coffee for years. so against all reason i am going to bring few packets from the UK: maybe some african blends. a quick search on tesco page reveals that a pack of decent coffee costs 2.99 per half a pound pack (the same price is listed for few starbucks blends). 6 british pounds per pound is still what, below 380 pesos?

    We switched to Monte Alto this trip, excellent coffee. We brought back about 25 pounds of beans both regular and organico.

    I did also try the Cafe Santo Domingo "Espresso Roast", which we also liked a lot, but it's harder to find than regular Cafe Santo Domingo [and we only use that in DR because we've never found it in beans/grano].

    The owners of the Santo Domingo brand are known for buying the lowest quality beans from smallholders after the good part of the harvest is sold for export. They also recently brought in Vietnamese product to boost quality. Talk about selling refrigerators to newcastle! I mean coal to eskimos...wait ...
