A stunning lot from the amazing Mamanis – with notes of brown sugar, nectarine and soft stone fruits
We first bought coffee from Juana Mamani in 2011, back then she was just 27 years old and had recently won second prize in Bolivia’s Cup for Excellence for her stunning coffee. So we are over the moon to have finally visited her at her lovely farm high in the hills of the remote region of Uchumachi. Now married to Juan Mamani (no relation honestly, there are a LOT of Mamanis in Bolivia!) Juan and Juana along with their two young daughters continue to grow spectacular lots on their small farm where they process their coffee on a small mechanical depulper and dry the beans on raised beds in the sun. The Mamani Family have built up a enviable reputation for producing some of Bolivia’s best coffee and are part of Agricafe’s brilliant Sol de Manana project which you can read more about as well as our recent trip to the Mamani farm in our journal here.
