Bolivia Juan Jose Machicado

This is our first year bringing in Juan Jose’s coffee through our friends at St. Frank Coffee who has been buying this coffee since 2014.  Juan Jose married into the Luque family which covered the Cima del Jaguar peak of the Kantutani which includes previous Cup of Excellence winners.  He recently renovated his original farm to new Icatu and Catuai plants while expanding in partnership with St. Frank’s farmer support and exporter Invalsa. 

Juan Jose’s simple production of hand pulped and wooden box fermented coffee is soon to be upgraded to a powered concrete wet mill able to process coffee not only from his own farms but for neighbors as well.  Juan Jose Machicado produces a perfect example of Bolivian Speciality Coffee with organic typica and catuai at high elevations on steep and dense jungle terrain for wild but refined flavors that we felt best resembled a deep prune like acidity, and a nice mild caramel and walnut with a silky body.  We absolutely have enjoyed this coffee!
