Cherry Hill Coffee unveiled this new crop of organic Bolivian coffee at our last Brew School event in Kelowna, and it went over extremely well with the group. We’ve kept the roast profile on the lighter side to show off it’s great woodsy, spice aroma (think typical Sumatra’s) with a really balanced, almost juicy taste profile. It’s now available online for $16.80/lb.

Caranavi Yungas is a sub-tropical humid region, characterized by the abundance of high mountains which are covered by lush tropical vegetation with a rich soil and a climate that gives the coffee its special features.

Coffee is grown at 1,200-1, 600m and produces a cup that is well balanced, clean, and floral with a pineberry sweet, earthy nutmeg aroma, and coconut elements as well.

CELCCAR’s mission is to provide training and technical assistance for production and processing of coffee, citrus, bananas, stevia and other crops. As a cooperative, self-managing in finance and implementing projects in a professional manner without losing the essence of solidarity.

The quality of the coffee produced is shown, having become a semifinalist in the competition “Cup of Excellence” for two consecutive years.
