    The latter owns the former.

    At the risk of being censored for being off topic, other than the fact that Sobeys and Loblaws are in the retail grocery industry, there is no link between the two.

There are several other small local coffee producer that produce and sell a good flavored coffee. you are paying 350 pesos per lb.
    You are right. One can get real Dominican coffee, it is indeed real good. But the supermarket brands are 90% imported from Vietnam.
    Same happens to the "dominican" rice.

    Just bought a new local coffee called Sorpresa from up in the mountain here in Jarabacoa. Excellent coffee.

    Do you know if these Jaracoaba coffees (Sorpresa/Monte Alto) are for exportation ? Can you find them for sale in other areas ?

    None of the Ramirez brands are for export. However, they do some small batch private labelling for folks who do, but those brands come and go.

    90% of the Ramirez coffee business is bulk green bean export.

    You can buy it at Superstore/Loblaws in Western Canada. Not much more than Maxwell house or other coffees.

    There is a lot of product overlap/duplication in the two stores
    That’s what started me thinking

    Sorry to mislead anyone
