For more than a decade, Counter Culture has partnered with Bolivian farmers in the community of Nueva Llusta. This coffee is a collection of small, single-farmer lots from the CENAPROC cooperative, as well as a lot from Finca Villa Carmen–the farm belonging to our export partner, VICOPEX. The result is a vibrant and sweet coffee with notes of honeydew and tamarind.
The exporter and dry mill operator of Cenaproc’s coffee, VICOPEX “Virgen de Copacabana Estate”, also has farms in the region of Caranavi, including one that is adjacent to farms in Nueva Llusta called Finca Villa Carmen. The coffee from this farm isn’t new to us, but this year’s harvest is remarkable and compliments the highest quality lots from Cenaproc, so making a blend of these coffees was a logical union. We look forward to showcasing the best coffees from Bolivia each year, but the very low yields of this past harvest combined with extreme delays in their exportation made for a very limited amount of coffee that we get to offer.
