Mamie café Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Mamie café

Perching 800m above altitude at the top of a jungle-covered mountain in the heights of Paraiso, in the preserved province of Barahona, the 'La Mamie' coffee plantation is reached via a 45-minute 4x4 ride (or one hour on a mule) following a rough track. Along the way you cross rivers that require using a Camel Trophy, and come across children playing along the side of the road. Once at the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent panorama over the valley right up to the Caribbean Sea. This is where Joël, originally from the principality of Andorra, has been producing 100% organic arabica coffee since August 2008. Joël and his wife also host guests in their beachside home in Los Patos.

Named in tribute to his deceased mother, La Mamie is an affectionate nickname for the women in the country (not just mothers but also sisters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers, mothers-in-law?).
