History of coffee in the Dominican Republic
The history of coffee in the Dominican Republic dates back to the early 18th century, when the first coffee plantations appeared on the island. Coffee was brought to the Dominican Republic by Spanish colonizers, who saw the potential of the island's coffee crops. Over the following decades, coffee became an important export product for the Dominican Republic, and coffee crops began to spread to different regions of the country. In 1865, Dominican coffee was showcased at an international exhibition in Amsterdam, where it won many prizes and awards. In the 1970s, the Dominican Republic's coffee crop began to decline, as many plantations were destroyed by hurricanes and due to competition with other coffee countries. In recent years, however, interest in Dominican coffee has begun to grow again, and local coffee producers are trying to promote their products as high quality and unique in taste. Today, the Dominican Republic is one of the smaller coffee producers in Latin America, but coffee from the country is becoming increasingly popular among coffee connoisseurs. It is characterized by a delicate flavor, with nutty, fruity and floral notes, and has low acidity and a mild body.
