Juan Luis Guerra’s trip to London England has once again put Dominican Republic Coffee on the world map. Once ignored for its coffee production, the Dominican Republic is becoming a strong force on the world coffee market.

“I’ve been jumping up and down for years about Dominican Coffee, trying to get people to take notice of some of the worlds best coffee beans.”

Online PR News – 30-June-2011 –In celebration of Juan Luis Guerra’s London debut has just added Free Shipping to all its sales of Premium dominican coffee. While the Dominican Republic is known for its robust and flavorful coffee much of the world overlooks its quality premium coffee beans.

Anton Suhy, Dominican Coffee aficionado and online retailer of Dominican Coffee notes “I’ve been jumping up and down for years about Dominican Coffee, trying to get people to take notice of some of the worlds best coffee beans. People ask me about Columbian Coffee and all I can say is Ciao! People really need to wake up and smell the Dominican Coffee. We have the climate, the altitude and the soil to grow some of the best coffee beans in the world.” Suhy, who currently resides in Santiago, Dominican Republic sells Premium dominican coffee online via

Suhy continues “In celebration of Juan Luis Guerra’s first concert in London, Dominican Coffee Canada is offering Free Shipping on all orders to the United States and Canada. There is no reason it cannot be raining dominican republic coffee in everyone’s kitchen in Canada and the United States”.

Juan Luis Guerra first found a wide audience in 1989 with the release of “Ojala que Llueva Cafe” – translated as “I hope it rains coffee.”

While The Dominican Republic known for its beautiful beaches and butt shaking music has increased exports of coffee in the last few years, much of the coffee grown never leaves the country. Exporting more of the premium coffee continues to be a goal of the Dominican Government. Coffee growing continues to be an important part of the struggling Dominican Economy.

Domincan Coffee Makes A Name For Itself

Dominican Coffee is a wonderfully rich-flavored and dark roasted coffee. The pride and joy of the Dominicans.  Most have their coffee black/ negro in a small cup with lots of sugar/ azucar. Try coffee with milk/cafe con leche. Coffee with lots of boiled milk/    medio pollo  . Or American Coffee/ Cafe Americana this is espresso coffee served with hot water to thin it out.

Annual Dominican coffee production has dropped  from around 1.2 million quintales to 700,000 quintales. Exports generate annual revenues of approximately $50 million, though that figure is difficult to verify.

Quality, however, doesn’t seem to be a problem. Rodriguez claims that the chairman of a large specialty coffee association has said that Dominican coffee is much better than Jamaica’s Blue Mountain? – which retails for upwards of $90 a pound in Tokyo.

“Prices have improved because now everybody wants coffee. Exporters want high-quality coffee to export, and local companies need coffee for the local market,”  she said, noting that around 80% of Dominican coffee stays in the country – translating into the seventh-highest level of internal demand among the world?s coffee-producing countries.

Robust Dominican Coffee

In January 2003, Codocafe inaugurated a five-year, 17 million-euro project funded by the French government. In Spanish or English, its title is a mouthful: Proyecto de Mejoramiento de la Calidad del Cafe Dominicano y Promocion de Cafes Especiales (project to improve the quality of Dominican coffee and promotion of specialty coffees).
