An expressive Bolivian coffee from Taypiplaya producers and Agricafé. A washed field blend that represents Bolivian coffee in a beautiful way. Tasting notes of apple, figs, raisins and walnuts make this espresso stand out.
This is a first collaboration of DAK with Agricafé - a Bolivian family business that produces coffee from its own farms and sources high-quality micro-lots from small producers. This particular lot has been produced by Taypiplaya. The farm was established more than 25 years ago by migrants from the altiplano (high lands) of the Potosi department. Today, the community relies on income from coffee and citrus production for their livelihoods. The area planted with coffee in which farm is small, from 1 to 2 hectares. Producers keep the rest of their land as wild forests. The soil in this region is very rich, the elevation goes from 1,500 to 1850 m.a.s.l and the weather is subtropical. Caturra, Catuai and Bourbon are the main varietals and they grow mixed. In 2018, many families from the colony Taypiplaya joined the program "Sol De La Mañana" in order to reactivate coffee production in that region.
