It's been almost three years since we have offered a single origin Bolivian coffee, but once you try this one, you'll see why we're featuring it. This coffee was produced by smallholder farmers from the community (or "colonia") of Bolinda, which lies in a steep mountain valley about 10 kilometers outside the town of Caranavi.
