The Caranavi is a specialty Bolivian coffee grown by a small group of native coffee farmers known as colonials, on land that is at high elevations rising to 8,500 feet above sea level.

These typica and bourbon coffee beans are cultivated in the tropical growing regions of Bolivia below a magnificent mahogany forest, coming from 41 small farms averaging about three acres each.

This cooperative is comprised of all indigenous people, that are native to the land on the edge of the Andes mountains, and bordering the rainforest and jungle of the Amazon. The land next to their farms is government protected land, and the indigenous groups have decided to treat their land as if it were protected as well. Most of which have already been certified Smithsonian Bird Friendly, and all of which have been certified Organic.

Cupping Notes 88 Pts Chocolate Aromas that carry into the flavor, and pair with mild notes of clean citrus. Heavily sweet caramel finish.

I really love this bean. It has a very nice flavor that stands on its own. It definitely has a bourbon like flavor within its notes. I would highly suggest it.

I wanted to try this coffee based on the profile provided by CBC and was not disappointed. This coffee is best with a light roast. It is very smooth, not bitter in any way. As the coffee cools the distinct flavors range from chocolate to slightly citrus with a black tea finish; reminds me of a Gesha almost. I will definitely buy this coffee again.
