ORIGIN INFORMATION

It is with great pleasure that we present to you for the third consecutive year a coffee from Bolivia, Kusillo. This magnificent South American country is a coffee producer little known to the general public, and yet its climate and very high altitude make it a particularly interesting origin. 

Kusillo coffee comes from Bolinda in the province of Caranavi, located in western Bolivia. Finca Kusillo is one of the farms owned by Agricafe. Founded around 30 years ago by Pedro Rodriguez, Agricafe is today run by Pedro and his two children, Daniela and Pedro Pablo, and represents a total of nearly 1,000 producers. In parallel with its own production activities, Agricafe offers logistical and financial support to the producers it represents, in addition to training them in sustainable agricultural practices and enabling them to increase the quality of their harvests.

We bought this lot directly from Agricafe and we entrusted the transport to the company Apex Coffee Imports.

Cultivated at an altitude of around 1500 meters, this coffee is made from the Caturra red variety. It is picked when fully ripe and sorted by floating first, then by hand, in order to remove overripe or underripe cherries. It is then pulped using a mechanical pulper, then placed in an airless fermentation tank whose temperature is maintained below 25 degrees Celsius. Finally, it is passed under a stream of water to remove the remaining mucilage, before being dried slowly and under permanent control in a mechanical dryer for 110 hours, according to a rhythm recreating the alternation of day and night . Fruity and delicate, it offers a complex tasting experience both in espresso and filter.

This round and very sweet coffee tastes of candied fruit and raisins, with a finish of brown sugar.

Ce café rond et très sucré goûte le fruit confit et le raisin sec, sur une finale de sucre brun.
