Bolivia Taypiplaya Neri's Lot

In the cup this starts out with sweet and juicy lime before shifting towards a Cadbury's Fudge bar - there is smooth milk chocolate and buttery fudge. On the finish a little bit of pineapple is doing a boogie with some flowers.

DETAILS

Neri and her husband Juan live in Caranavi. They are a young couple and have only just got married. Every day they drive to Taypiplaya to source their cherries because they are saving money to buy their own land.

Juan is the son of Carmelia Aduviri, whom we've enjoyed coffee from in the past (archive), and Juan helped her on the farm as he grew up. Delicious coffee production certainly runs in this family!

When Neri visits Taypiplaya, she basically sources the best cherries she can. That's what makes this 'Neri's Lot.' She visits various producers who are selling their crop and selects the ones she thinks are best. Taypiplaya is a region where producers are used to delivering cherry to cooperatives because they belong to a cooperative, but here Neri fulfils the role of a coop.

Many cooperatives in Taypiplaya have closed because of bad management or due to failure to pay their producers. It's thanks to people like Neri that we still get to enjoy the delicious coffees that this area produces.

The producers of Taypiplaya live around the top of the mountains that surround the town, and they deliver their cherries to locations in the town every night. The colony is located in the municipality of Caranavi to the northeast of La Paz.

The coffee is grown between altitudes of 1,600 and 1,850 metres above sea level, and it's a mix of red and yellow Caturra and Catuai.
