Bolivia Coffee Beans - Manco Kapak HoneyHorsham Coffee Roaster
Caranavi known as the capital of coffee is located in the lush forest of the Yungas region. This is where the famous Death Road follows the Andes Mountains from the dry Altiplano to the lush green forest of the Amazon jungle. This unique region has two climates and is home to the most fertile soil and consequently where the majority of coffee in Bolivia is produced. All the coffee has to travel this treacherous road to be processed and exported from La Paz. The complex and expensive road transportation adds a significant cost to the coffee exported from Bolivia.
Coffee producers in the area produce small amount of coffee from their far which they deliver to the Buena Vista mill in Caranavi for processing. This allows all of the producers to reduce their risk as they get paid immediately, and it allows the mill to control the quality of processing ensuring the highest possible cup scores.
We've selected one of the honey processed microlots. After mechanical pulping to remove the fruit, the Bolivian Coffee Beans are directly moved to raised beds for 3-4 days before being dried in mechanical dryers: big square boxes with hot air flow at the bottom. When on sunbeds, coffee is moved every 30 min in the morning and every hour in the afternoon. When in the boxes, coffee is moved every hour. The temperature in the mechanical dryers never goes over 40 degrees Celsius and moisture and temperature are constantly monitored for an even drying environment.

Got these as a freebie with my grinder, they are absolutely delicious. Easy to brew, delicate and juicy without that African acidity. One of my favourites
Smooth with what I felt was a well balanced flavour.
I will be ordering more.
First time I've tried Horsham Coffee Roasters. I am thoroughly enjoying the Bolivian coffee beans I ordered. I will definitely be re ordering.
Full bodied rounded complex and delicious.
This is a fine example of how great Bolivian coffee could be. Big body yet sweet and clear taste. Just hope HCR will increase focus on coffees from this country, to many of us still a well-hidden gem.
