Roasted and ready at caffe d’bolla today: Bolivia Caranavi – Uchumachi.
This lot is from Uchumachi, north of Caranavi. Most of the production in the area is newer growth Caturra above 1,800 masl., and Typica consistent with the region. The mill is run by Pedro Rodriguez and his son Pablo, who have proven skilled at sourcing excellent coffees. Taxis are hired to transport the ripe cherry through the mountainous roads to the mill. An ingenious operation!
In the cup it’s walnut, chocolate, toasted coconut, and hints of snappy orange. Yum. Yum.
