    Default Best coffee in DR

    Used to bring SANTO DOMINGO coffee home but last time I was in the DR there was a drought and the bean crop was down and I heard that coffee was being imported. If true has the crops recovered.
    My son loves coffee and I want to bring him some beans home. I don't drink it so me testing it would be worthless. He like strong coffee.

    I know everyone has an opinion so I might take an average.
    Thanks

    The best coffee is not the strongest coffee.

    If you like strong coffee, Cafe Santo Domingo from a greca is fine.

    Often poor quality coffee is roased dark to hide the faults.

    Santo Domingo is always imported. One of the worst I have tasted. We always bring three or four packages from the Netherlands. Organic Colombian.

    It was after the rust. The DR coffee crop is getting close to normal again. I doubt they import much anymore.

    Sin embargo, en los últimos cinco años República Dominicana se ha visto en la obligación de importar medio millón de quintales por año (2.5 millones de quintales), lo que significa que la mayor parte del café que se consume en el mercado interno no es cosechado en los campos dominicanos.
    ......

    También reveló que hay 1.6 millón de tareas de cafetos que necesitan rehabilitación. Un reportaje reciente de la agencia EFE destaca que el 92% del café que consumen los dominicanos llega de Vietnam. Cada año se importan entre US$15 y US$18 millones por este concepto.

    The crop has rebounded well.

Monte Alto is a strong flavored coffee that I doubt is imported. I drink aeveral coffees local to Jarabacoa area that are good and Kafe from Rancho Arriba is an organic coffee that is medium roast and great tasting. Coffee Melo is also good, and strong. There are some others.
