Roast

We roasted this batch of Bolivia Honey to a medium roast. Depending on the grind and brewing method, this Organically Grown Bolivia Honey can produce hints of peach and  peanut brittle with tart and juicy notes.

Brewing

We suggest using the pour-over method to maximized the aroma and flavor of this coffee using a 1:16 coffee to water ratio with the water between 200F and 205F. Once grounds are placed in the filter, pre-soak grounds by covering with water for ~30sec to allow for blooming, then finish with either a steady pour or a couple of short pours to complete the brewing process.

Coffee Background

Coffee has been in Bolivia for hundreds of years, but now a new generation of coffee farmers dedicated to producing high-quality coffee are taking the stage in Bolivia. For the first time in the country’s history, green coffee production has funding and support from the federal government, fueling the search for knowledge among dedicated young coffee professionals. The epicenter in the rise of Bolivian specialty coffee is in the los Yungas region, where most farms were first established after a wave of migration to the region caused by Bolivia’s Agrarian Revolution in the 1950s. And nearly a century later this lot emerges from a single small farm belonging to Grober Mamani and his family. The 8-acre farm called Finca Machacamarca is located near Caranaví in the Irupana municipality. The Mamani family has been growing coffee in the greater Yungas region of Bolivia for over 50 years. Grober carefully harvests the cherry, depulps and dries the coffee on patios and raised beds with mucilage still attached, skipping the washing stage to save water. Since Bolivia is a landlocked coffee producing country, farmers need help getting their coffee to the international market. Felix Chambi Garcia through his leadership role at the San Juan cooperative has become an important figure, helping producers with the logistics of moving coffee to the dry-mill where quality and traceability are protected during the preparation for export.
