This creamy, sweet coffee spotlights notes of honey, milk chocolate, peach, graham cracker and marshmallow egg. We've found Bolivian coffees to be incredibly smooth, rich and pleasant to drink and this one, from producer Pedro Flores, really lives up to that reputation.
This lovely coffee hails from the farm of Pedro Flores, located in the Villa Rosario community near La Paz, Bolivia. The cup is reminiscent of a Cadbury Easter egg- smooth, sweet and creamy. The well-rounded body and sweetness make this a fantastic everyday coffee, as well as a lovely, balanced espresso.
Don Pedro Flores, age 65, has been a coffee producer all his life. He and his wife, Bonifacia Mamani, have 5 children. Their farm has 2 hectares of coffee, but is 10 hectares in total size. They also grow citrus (orange, mandarine, lemon, papaya), and the rest of the land is wild. During the harvest all the family help picking the coffee, and at night they deliver the cherries to the Agricafe wet mill, where they carefully process all the coffee.
Bolivia is a new, exciting origin for us and we are enthusiastic about the potential of amazing specialty coffee. Our goal is to develop more long-term relationships with small producers through our partners at Agricafe. A family-run Bolivian mill and specialty coffee exporter, Agricafe works with small producers in the Caranavi region, and we are proud to partner with them.
