NEW CROP 2021: A well balanced, highly rated clean cup: with caramel, chocolate, nuttiness and medium acidity. Bolivians always a favorite at Big Medicine and with our coffee tribe.
Bolivian terrain and geography is perfect for Arabica production, particularly throughout the greater Yungas region. Here, the Andean mountain ranges connect the low and humid Amazonian basin to the dry Andean altiplano above. Caranavi is the most productive municiplaity in the Yungas, with steep, cloudy, rugged and remote forest comprising more than 90% of the territory.
This makes for a challenging overland transit for their processed coffees, traversing elevations over 4000 meters, from the tops of their Andes westward to the port of Arica on the Chilean seaside.
Once springtime commences here in our northern Michigan highlands, we anxiously await the Bolivian Caranavi, and proudly add this one to our New Crops for 2021!
