Dominican Republic, Ramirez Estate

Ramirez Estate


The Ramirez family is extraordinarily socially conscious. They use fermented coffee cherries to create natural gas, which powers their operation. They donate books and computers to local schools, and in a more rural area, they built and funded a new school preventing small children from having to walk over 15 km each way to class. The Ramirez family also helps Haitian immigrants obtain legal residence in the Dominican Republic in order to receive fair wages.
