A premium, soft-bean coffee from the Dominican Republic.


This single-origin coffee is characterized by its smoothness. Grown exclusively by family farmers working in cooperation with the Earth Sangha, each bean is hand-picked, and sun-dried before being shipped to the Washington, DC, area and roasted by Beanetics in Annandale, Virginia. 

The Earth Sangha is a nonprofit charity based in the DC area and devoted to ecological restoration.


to About


Rising Forests® Coffee is  “the most sustainable coffee” you can buy. We pay our coffee farmers directly — and we pay them at more than twice the usual Fair Trade rate. We also go beyond conventional shade-grown. Our coffee trees are planted with minimal disturbance in small groves, within tropical forest fragments, or into degraded areas that are being restored to native forest canopy. No pesticides or fertilizers are used to grow our coffee. By giving vulnerable forests an economic value, Rising Forests® creates a powerful incentive to conserve and restore forest.


All Earth Sangha profits from Rising Forests® return to our Tree Bank Hispaniola program, which works in the region where the coffee is grown: the mountains of the Dominican province of Dajabón, near the border with Haiti. The Tree Bank is a partnership between the Earth Sangha and the Asociación de Productores de Bosque Los Cerezos, a farmers’ co-op. The Tree Bank works to improve small-holder farm incomes through forest conservation projects that provide economic benefits. Learn more on the Earth Sangha's website.


We offer two roasts:

 Medium is very smooth, with mild citrus and fruit notes. Perfect to drink all day long. 

Dark is bolder, but not bitter, with chocolate flavors.

Both roasts are available as whole-bean or ground.

  Where to Buy  

We're currently sold out of Rising Forests Coffee. In 2015, a leaf-blight epidemic (the la roya) killed almost all the coffee trees in our region. Ever since, we have been replanting with blight-resistant varieties, but wont have a new harvest until late 2019 or 2020.
