RED HONEY PROCESS (SCCA Score 89) – This coffee comes from a certified single estate in the Jarbacoaa region of the Dominican Republic. The Ramirez Estate employs over 400 people, where 40% of the workers are female and many of them are Haitian migrant workers. These workers are paid roughly 300% higher wages than Fair Trade standard, and the Estate uses a sizable portion of their profits to create sustainable gas recycling (to reduce emissions), water filtration (to prevent river contamination), and to donate computers and books to many of the local schools. They built and funded a new school preventing small children from having to walk over 15 km each way to school.
