Las Alasitas

Caranavi, Boliva



Mango, Fig, Almond Cake 

This week's Passenger subscription is from the Caranavi region of Bolivia. Las Alasitas isa pioneering farm owned by the Rodriguez family, who are working hard to increase production in a country that otherwise would have ceased growing coffee. This particular lot is a Longberry variety. Hailing from Ethiopia it brings a lot of the same complexities you'd expect from an African coffee, but with a tropical twist from the natural process.

This coffee showcases the natural process with bold notes of Mango and fig up front, followed by a boozy almond cake texture.
