Some fun #CoffeeFacts: 1) Because of Dominican Rep Some fun #CoffeeFacts: 1) Because of Dominican Republic's high elevation in the mountainous central region of Jarabacoa,  our country is one of the world's top producers of arabica coffee. 2) Most beans are grown in elevations between 2,000 and 5,000 feet because the higher up the elevation, the harsher the growing conditions are, so the plants take longer to grow and therefore have more time to develop more complex and flavorful sugars. 3) Dominican Republic exports around 350,000-500,000 bags of coffee beans per year.
