The Dominican Republic was one of the first colonies that received coffee seeds from Martinique at the beginning of the 18th century. In the last decades the Republic suffered from crises, revolutions and poverty. The country has been recovering slowly from all the trouble and the economy has only recently started to recover. Apart from tourism, the export of coffee is a very important economic factor for the country. Only a few people know about the high-quality coffee which ripens under ideal growing conditions on many small farms. This coffee comes from the northwest of the island, the best cultivation region of the country, the so-called "Barahona". The raw coffees are washed and dried in the sun.
