Due to Barahona’s proximity to the Caribbean Sea and an accidentally topography, coffee harvesting begins in August and finishes in February. Our coffee is grown at an altitude of 600-1,100 meters above sea level. The distribution of rain all year long and sunshine allows for 4-5 blooming of varying intensities which in turn makes coffee growers and pickers return five to six times, on average, to the same tree.
