ABOUT THE FARM

This coffee comes from 33 farmers from one of Bolivia's oldest coffee growing cooperatives: Agricola Cafetalera San Juan Cooperative. The cooperative was formally constituted in 1974 with the vision of supporting small family farms that focus on organic, chemical free farming practices. In recent years many modern updates to quality control and processing have been implemented at the co-op to further increase the quality of the coffee.

The region is steep, rugged and remote with lots of natural forest making up the majority of the landscape. Due to this terrain, the biggest challenges for small farmers in the area are transportation and infrastructure. Considered one of the most strenuous overland transit routes in the coffee world, they must pass over the Andes at altitudes over 4000 masl to get to the port of Arica in Chile. Given the country’s low overall production, the select few producer groups in the industry, and the formidable logistical challenges, each successful arrival is something to be cherished.
