The coffee story

Bolivia is South America's only landlocked coffee producing country and is the smallest exporter of coffee on the continent.
The quality of this particular microlot, however, is hardly lacking in diversity or flavors.
Bolivia’s terroir and geography are gifted for Arabica production, especially throughout its majestic Los Yungas  region, whose mountain ranges connect the low and dry Andean Altiplano with the humid Amazonian area.
(Yungas means in Aymara for "warm lands").

The most productive municipality in Los Yungas is by far Caranavi, where 80% of Bolivia's specialty coffee has continued to thrive over the decades. Copacabana is one of the colonies in Caranavi and in there live 35 families. For the majority of their members, coffee is their main income. 

During the day, the families pick the cherries. Around 5 PM they meet to control & select the best cherries, then they drive straight to the Wet Mill " Buena Vista" in Caranavi town which is 40 min to 1,5 hours away.  At the mill, there is strict control of the cherries. If they pass the quality check, producers will drive back home with the payment.

During harvest time in Bolivia, we have lots of rain, which makes it super difficult to only depend on raised beds under the sun for drying. At Buena Vista mill, Agricafe uses different drying methods in order to control and consistency as this is super important for the longevity of the coffee.  


The process

Washed with fermentation in tanks for over 48 hours. This coffee was de-pulped around 12 AM and introduced to a sealed tank for over 42 hours. The aromas during the fermentation were like a fruit punch!

Agricafe is a Bolivian family business that produces coffee from its own farms and sources high-quality micro-lots from small producers in the regions of Los Yungas and Santa Cruz. As pioneers within South American specialty coffee, Agricafe initially entered the coffee industry in 1986, when Pedro Rodriguez decided to pursue his passion for agriculture. Over 34 years later, he has seen and lived the ups and downs of Bolivian coffee and is now working along with his daughter Daniela and his son Pedro Pablo. The trio runs the company with the idea of restoring and improving Bolivian coffee by launching producer training programs and planting own farms across the above-mentioned regions.

Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
