We enjoyed our visit to Stauf’s Coffee Shop ( and you can read about it in the coffee shop reviews category. We have not tried a coffee from the Dominican Republic yet so we were looking forward to trying this one that was roasted by Stauf’s. It is described as a bold, full body, with smoky malt and dark chocolate flavors. It finishes clean with a subtle zest of citrus and lower acidity. It came to us as a whole bean full city roast.

The Café Femenino beans are the first and only beans grown exclusively by women farmers. This program is designed to help girls and women get an education and to come out of poverty. The Café Femenino line is helping women in different countries improve their lives and lifestyles. Stauf’s is also committing 20% of the sales to the Griswold Residency of YWCA Columbus, Ohio. This helps provide women in transition with affordable housing.

First up was the French Press and there is a nutty aroma that greets you when you open the bag. After it is brewed it has a flower like aroma in the cup. It has a sweet smooth flavor and medium body that hits the front half of your tongue. There is a clean, fruity, naturally sweet aftertaste.

Next up was the Chemex coffee maker and the aroma in the cup was more fruity and floral. There is a bright clean flavor with a snappy zing to the middle of the tongue. The naturally sweet flavor is more pronounced here. This coffee paired well with almonds, dried figs and dark chocolate.

We enjoyed this coffee in the auto-drip also. The nutty aroma and good flavor were still there. If you are on a diet and want to get away from any type of sweetener you will probably like this coffee because it tastes real good black. The natural sweetness and fruity aftertaste are very pleasing. It goes well with a high fiber, low fat snack. We’d give this coffee two thumbs up in any brewing style.

If you want to help out some good causes ( and while drinking a flavorful coffee we suggest you try this Dominican Republic Café Femenino from Stauf’s Coffee Roasters. We received this coffee for free and offer objective feedback. Until next time remember to stop and enjoy the coffee and conversation.

Much GRACE and peace to you,

Bill and Kim
