Spirit Mountain Organic Coffe

Spirit Mountain coffee is grown on a 350 acre ecological reserve located high in the Central Mountain Range of the Dominican Republic. The plantation is certified organic and produces a very smooth Caribbean brew with good body, a rich cocoa flavor and mid acidity. The coffee is grown under a diverse multi leveled shade canopy that is home to many of the Dominican Republic’s many rare and beautiful endemic bird species. Typica’ and ‘Caturra’ coffee plants can be found in abundance between 3,500 and 4,500 feet elevation on the Spirit Mountain plantation, where coffee is harvested using practices surpassing Fair Trade standards. We process the coffee using the popular wet process, washing the coffee in closed tubs.


The coffee is then sun dried over the course of several days, until optimum humidity is obtained within the dried coffee bean, at which time, the coffee is transported to Jarabacoa for storage at ASCAJA’, a small farmer coffee cooperative, which is certified organic. All proceeds produced through the sale of Spirit Mountain coffee go to benefit the scholarship program and other educational programs at the Doulos Discovery School located in Jarabacoa, about 15 miles from the coffee plantation. Our ecological reserve is also the official experiential learning extension for Doulos students. It is our primary work to support the Doulos mission.


Krista and Chad Wallace are partners in the Spirit Mountain coffee plantation with Jeff Loftsgaarden from Minnesota. While Jeff Loftsgaarden is mainly a silent yet supportive partner, Chad takes an active role in the development of the vision and the daily operations of the plantation, with the help of Celestino Perez, our Plantation manager, catador (coffee taster) and agricultural engineer.


We purchased the plantation in May 2003 from the Cristino Lopez family, who had managed his family plantation since 1972. Since then we’ve been in a continual process of ecological rehabilitation. The plantation was abandoned in 1998, after hurricane George destroyed access to the region. After restoring access, we immediately began improving the quality and diversity of the shade canopy throughout the plantation and began devoting more resources to the rejuvenation of older coffee plants while planting new ones where older coffee plants had since died. Our reforestation efforts have included the reintroduction of native hardwood species that were either rare or non-existent in the region. We have introduced many experimental species of both hardwoods and softwoods at Spirit Mountain.


We hope that this journey into the unknown will help us find the perfect agro-forestry mix, promoting bio-diversity alongside the cultivation of organic coffee while developing a lucrative plantation crop of timber for a country that imports more than 90% of its wood products. We have planted some 50,000+ trees to date: 30+ species, both for timber and food for the birds. The plantation is rich in water, boasting hundreds springs which adorn much of the acreage. Spring water from Spirit Mountain serves as a source for drinking water for La Angostura, the village located just below Spirit Mountain.
