Coffee Review - Bolivia Copacabana by Kean Coffee

  • Bolivia Copacabana

Roast: Medium Review Date: April 2013
Origin: Caranavi Province, La Paz Department, Bolivia. Price: $14.75/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Rich, deep, floral. Dark chocolate, night-blooming flowers, molasses, prune, with a brightening hint of tangerine-like citrus in aroma and cup. Juicy, complexly expressed acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The citrus hint in particular lingers in a resonantly flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown by small-holding producers. With two locations in Southern California's Orange County, Kéan Coffee is an in-house coffee roaster and retailer established by Martin Diedrich of the distinguished Diedrich coffee family. The Kéan slogan, "Martin knows his beans" should be true, considering Martin grew up in Guatemala where his family owned a coffee farm.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy depth, resonance and a juicy rather than bright acidity.


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.
