Carmelita Bolivia Espresso
This heavenly coffee was produced by Carmela Aduviri in Copacabana, a small and remote settlement 180 kilometres from La Paz in the heart of the Caranavi province. This region is the epicentre for specialty coffee production in Bolivia, with incredibly high elevations, rich soil, and wide daily temperature ranges providing the perfect conditions to produce exceptional coffee. Carmela has worked in coffee for 40 years, all while raising seven children. Her farm, Carmelita, is just over two hectares in size and sits at an elevation of 1,500–1,670 metres above sea level. Today, Carmela manages the farm with her sons Elvis and Luis, and together they work incredibly hard on improving and producing the best quality coffee they can.
