This new organic microlot from Bolivia comes from the Colonia Kantutani Cooperative located in the Caranavi region, farmed by Braulio Luque Yana. The farm sits at about 5,500 feet above sea level in a community called Cima del Jaguar (translated to Jaguar's Peak in English) named for the wild jaguars who roam the land. Braulio, his wife, and his brother all share the farm - but they keep their coffee production separate. In 2009 all three of them placed in the Bolivia Cup of Excellence competition, a testiment to their hardwork and experience. The farm is comprised of 4 hectares and is mostly Caturra varietal with a smaller portion of Catuai.
