Our Coffees Finca El Trapiche

Finca El Trapiche
Fincas Los Rodríguez

Yellow plums and caramel with low to medium acidity and creamy body - medium roast

Finca El Trapiche is one of Agricafe's farms in the Samaipata region. Agricafe (agricafe.com.bo) is the processor and exporter we work with in Bolivia. They started their farm project to help develop the new coffee growing area in Samaipata. This is the first year we have had coffee from El Trapiche and we are pleased with its caramelised-fruit sweetness. The farm was planted in 2016 and this lot is one of the first crops to be processed and sold. For this farm the Fincas Los Rodríguez project has concentrated on planting a diverse range of cultivars including Geisha, Geisha Hawaii, Batian, Ethosar, SL28, SL34 and Java, as well as the more traditional (for the area) Carurra and Bourbon. We selected the noble Bourbon this year; the clarity of fruit and refined body give this cultivar its elegance.
