We taste

An espresso with fines notes of fruit, reminiscent of lychee and whose sweetness reminds us of candied peach, all with a beautiful chocolate finish.

Brewing Recipe

Espresso

17.5g coffee | 32g water | 33sec

Optimal freshness: 5 to 30 days

The bean:

FARM: El Trapiche

PRODUCER: Rodriguez Family

REGION: Samaipata

COUNTRY: Bolivia

ELEVATION: 1550 to 1700 masl

VARIETY: Caturra

PROCESS: Natural

Particularities

This mutation of Bourbon was found near the town Caturra, in Brazil, in the 1930s. Caturra is a higher-yielding, that makes for easy picking, but can become it’s own worst enemy on lower-altitude growing conditions, where the coffee becomes quite light-bodied and the weight of fruit can kill the plant. When grown at the higher altitude above 4,000ft, Caturra plants produce both a better-quality coffee and a more sensible yield size. Caturra is a common variety in the Central American belt.

STORY

El Trapiche farm is one of the five farms of Rodriguez’s family (Agricafé) from Samaipara region. Agricafé is a company founded 35 years ago and managed by Pedro Rodriguez and his children Daniela and Pedro Pablo Rodriguez. In addition to producing coffee on their 12 farms, they support several hundred of small producers with education and logistics. Participants of their 7-year long education program are at their last year and have seen a 200% increase in productivity as well as an improvement in quality. It is thanks to their vision and their commitment that the Rodriguez were recognized in 2019 by winning the SCA Sustainability Award for the best business model.
