This is another delicious and impressive coffee brought to us by Luis Choqueuanca.
The Java variety is an Ethiopian landrace variety that originated in the forests of Ethiopia. It was brought directly from there to the Island of Java in the 19th Century, and has since been transplanted in many different producing countries all over the world, including Bolivia.
Luis Choqueuanca is another one of the farmers who are part of Agricafe’s Sol De La Mañana program. Luis is a friendly, soft spoken man, married with two kids. His farm located in a remote, mountainous area a couple hours drive from Caranavi, through winding roads and steep climbs.
The Sol de La Mañana program was created as a way to educate and train local producers with the skills necessary to improve the quality of their farms. It is a strict program that requires alot of commitment by the producers. However, by doing so, these farmers are able to produce higher quality coffees with more yield providing them with better prices for their crops allowing them to provide a better life for their families.
