Coffee Review - Bolivia Organic by CafeTaster
  • CafeTaster

    I-Lan City, Taiwan
  • Bolivia Organic Buenavista 1738

Roast: Medium Review Date: March 2013
Origin: Caranavi Province, La Paz Department, Bolivia. Price: NTD $400/8 ounces

Blind Assessment: Round, rich, crisply sweet. Minty dark chocolate, night-blooming flowers, fresh-cut cedar, almond in aroma and cup. Gentle acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rich though rather drying finish.

Notes: Processed at Buenavista mill, an organic-certified central processing station in Caranavi Province, west-central Bolivia. CaféTaster is an aficionado nano-roaster of the style increasingly characteristic of East Asia countries like Taiwan and Korea, roasting very high-end coffees in very small volumes for a tiny clientele of passionate coffee enthusiasts, in the process selling coffee education as much as coffee itself. Email roaster Jerry Huang at for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a quietly balanced, crisp-finishing chocolate- and floral-toned cup.


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.
