Baking coffee and cocoa in a rural farm in Dominican Republic in a summer afternoon. The eco-tour took us a to a Dominical family farm for coffee and cocoa in the outskirts of the mountain. We were shown how cocoa and coffee is grown on the trees, picked up by women (the locals say it is a non-men job) when the time comes. After some other steps, it ends up in the fireplace for baking. The panorama shows the final before-sale step when baking takes place.
The Dominican Republic is a nation on the island of Hispaniola, part of the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region. The western third of the island is occupied by the nation of Haiti, making Hispaniola one of two Caribbean islands, along with Saint Martin, that are shared by two countries. Both by area and population, the Dominican Republic is the second largest Caribbean nation (after Cuba), with 48,442 square kilometres (18,704 sq mi) and an estimated 10 million people.Source:Wikipedia
