  • Organic, Fair-Trade Bolivia Caranavi

Roast: Medium Review Date: February 2007
Origin: Caranavi region, north of La Paz, Bolivia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Soft, sweet-toned aroma with limited but pleasing nuance: cedar, perhaps tomato. Remains sweet in the cup, crisply delicate, with very pronounced sweet cocoa tones. Superb finish: sweet, long and cocoa-laced.

Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. It is produced from trees of the classic typica variety of arabica at very high altitudes by members of the Cenaproc cooperative in the Yungas area north of La Paz, Bolivia. Counter Culture is a small-batch wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit or call 888-238-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who like causes and cocoa.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
