The Dominican Republic boasts a wide range of distinct microclimates ranging from 600 to 1450 meters above sea level. The coffee is grown on the slopes of the mountain range that runs down the centre of the country where it benefits from year-round rainfall. Many of the farms are small and naturally organic. As the coffee is grown in the shade, it exhibits a wide and varied range of flavours depending on where it is grown. Those grown at higher altitudes are more distinguished and well known for their rich flavours, heavier body and medium acidity.
Coffee was introduced to Cuba in 1748 and quickly became a huge industry. The majority of Cuban coffee is grown in one of two regions, Baracoa in the south east, and the Sierra Maestra Mountains in the south, where the fertile soils and light trade winds create the perfect growing conditions. Typical flavours from these coffees are strong, dark and sweet with heavy body and rich aromas.
Costa Rica is famed for being the first Central American country to establish a coffee industry when Arabica coffee beans arrived direct from Ethiopia. But things really took off when William le Lacheur Lyon, a British captain, sent some of this coffee back to the UK and the rest, as they say, is history. There are now around 78,000 producers making what is considered to be some of the very best coffee in the world. Thanks to its growing conditions, these coffees have high acidity, fine silky body, with rich flavours and distinct aromas.

great flavour, packets too small
as others have said, the individual packets are just too small for bean to cup machines. I did grind a whole packet, which only made a single cafetiere. I would only buy again but I could get bigger packets
Tried all three espresso ground, brewed in a DeLonghi machine and with a splash of milk. Cuban was weak, tasted washed out and past its date. Costa Rican was sweet, balanced and beautiful. Dominican was big, rich, actually pretty good espresso but not that well balanced. All in all, it's a nice idea enabling people to taste three coffees from the same region in quick succession without having to store loads of beans. But the Cuban one was awful...
The problem is the packaging
I received this to review and the beans are lovely. The problem is, the pack is too small to make a pot of coffee. I think thats why some people say its too weak. When I used them In our bean to cup machine it was perfect. Would totally buy the brand again - but in larger bags. Love that they arent those heavy, oily beans that gunge up the grinder.
not too bad
Its nice having the selection and wrapped in smaller packs so the beans dont go off if you just have a cup a day.
Really smooth coffee which made a lovely latte
"Lacked depth of flavour" household coffee expert
Hubby's input. I make single and double shot lattes and thought it would be fun to do a taste test side by side. Disappointed. On a practical level, I used a significant amount of the small sachets in learning the appropriate grinds - very fine grind to pull in the normal time. They lacked depth of flavour. The Cuban beans described as "dark roast" were IMO too light on flavour. Costa Rican and Dominican Republic beans were more to my taste but lacked depth. Nice idea but I much prefer the taste of my regular coffee beans so won't be buying.
