What you will visit:
Bois Cotlette Estate
The 53 pristine acres that define the Bois Cotlette Estate were purchased in 2011 from a descendant of the family, which had controlled the property since the late 1700s. The oldest surviving estate on Dominica, it is beautifully situated in the Morne Plat Pays volcanic complex. Carrying on its original traditions, this coffee estate also processed cocoa and sugar and today cultivates and produces artisan coffee and chocolates. At its height in the 19th century, the estate successfully processed coffee and sugar in addition to cocoa. And now, 295 years after the founding of the property, the estate is still active in the growing and processing of cocoa.
