Back from the Road: Visiting Cenaproc in Bolivia
Because I travel regularly, I sometimes wonder whether I'm less impressed by new places than I would have been a few years ago, as though "new" isn't new anymore, if that makes any sense. Well, I needn't have feared because Bolivia – with its unbelievable altitudes, welcoming producer community, and seemingly boundless opportunity for coffee quality – put those thoughts to rest.
I recently returned from a week in Bolivia with the Central Asociado de Productores de Café (Cenaproc), and I feel as though we're in an optimal position to make some real progress this year, and in the future, with this strong association of coffee growers. I hope you enjoy this set of photographs on Flickr!
