About Bolivia Coffee

The vast majority of coffee in Bolivia is produced in the Yungas areas of Bolivia.

High altitude, fertile soils and constant rainfall throughout the year make Bolivia a perfect location for growing coffee, however a lack of investment in infrastructure does pose logistical problems for the export of coffee. Like neighbouring Peru, coffee from Bolivia is medium bodied, creamy and lightly acidic. It’s cocoa and nutty tones make it a very usable coffee for blending, and some of the higher altitude specialty producers are creating standalone coffees scoring well on the SCAA score.
