This is a certified organic Bolivia Co-Op coffee from the San Juan co-op with sweet, clean flavor. On the map, you'll find Bolivia landlocked between Peru and Brazil. This can make it hard to export as passage to port requires co-operation of a competing country. Bolivian farmers also have a reputation of being "hard to work with." So a good Bolivia doesn't come on market all that often, and I snatched this one up excitedly.
It's a washed process coffee, and you can roast it light like a Costa Rica or Honduras to get some floral notes, citrus, and nuts. I like it more like a Colombia coffee where I'm tasting peanut butter with hints of rose and honey and a creamy body. It's also excellent as espresso at this roast level.
If you roast it just into 2nd cracks, you get more of a cocoa and peanut butter taste, but don't take it any darker than that or it starts picking up a charcoal aftertaste.
It is grown at high altitude (4,000-5,000 feet) in the Caranavi region.
