Organic Bolivian Colonial Caranavi
Certified Organic & Fair Trade from a small farm in the Caranavi Region of Bolivia that has an altitude of 1300 to 1700 meters.
The cup profile is a heavy rich aroma, low acidity, smooth body, with a sweet milk chocolate flavor.
The annual harvest takes place from May to October.
Located in a valley spread around the small city of Caranavi, located 4 hours from La Paz. The trip to Caranavi, which used to take 12 hours on the old road, named “Highway of Death” for its frequency of accidents, now cruises down eastern facing slopes of the Andes Mountains on a new smooth highway. Still, most coffee producers rarely see more than just the city of Caranavi, as their small scale farms are scattered over dozens of communities throughout the surrounding mountains and hillsides.
My usual order is the Mexical.. this was well worth it. Low acidity and very smooth flavor.
We originally got hooked on the Sumatra Vienna Blend, tried a few others and liked some, but until we tried the Bolivian Colonial Caranavi, nothing moved us as much as the SVB. But now - it's unanimous - we both love this one even more. (Bonus that is it Free Trade and Organic, too!) Back to order some more (2 or 3). Not overpowering or bitter but not wimpy either. Great flavor. Love it!
Very good flavor. Enjoyed it. I haven't drank it all yet!!!
