Finca Don Carlos

Candied plums and caramel with soft acidity and creamy body

Finca Don Carlos is owned and operated by Agricafe (agricafe.com.bo) as part of their Finca Buena Vista project. Agricafe realised in 2012 that in order for them to continue to process and market coffee they would need to increase their supply of coffee cherry. Unfortunately, coffee production in Bolivia has been on the decline for a number of years now as the internal market prices, coupled with more lucrative trade in other crops has seen a number of farmers abandon coffee. Agricafe started growing coffee at Finca Don Carlos (named in honour of their first farm manager) just a few years ago. They are operating the farm using agricultural best practice in order to show other farmers in the area what is possible and how to increase their crop quantity and quality and therefore their incomes.
