The current Bolivia we have in stock just arrived in late-Nov 2011 and we think it’s an exceptionally smooth, rich and full-flavored coffee – perfectly balanced with a nice sweet finish.
Sometimes a single-origin coffee will be one dimensional – it could be sweet, clean, bright, etc.
Occasionally, we come across a bean that is very complete – able to stand alone with complex flavors and superb balance.
This Bolivia FTO is exceptional.

We discovered this Bolovia from the Montana Verde estate back in November 2010 and it has remained a favorite in our FAIRTRADE lineup ever since.
The current crop Bolovia is higher in acid, making it quite enjoyable in milk.
