Bolivia Microlot: Porfirio Mamani

Organic Practices, Fully Washed, Dried on Raised Beds

Exotic, Sparkling, Chocolaty

This is a superb Bolivian Microlot from grower Porfirio Mamani.
Porfirio's farm is located high in the Bolivian mountains at 5,330 ft., in the San Ignacio Community.
Although not certified as such, Porfirio grows his coffee using 100% Organic, natural practices for fertilization, pest control, and more.

This is a Microlot offering, which means the coffee was only produced in very small quantities. The quality and care used to cultivate the flavor of this coffee is clearly apparent.

General Flavor Observations
Bolivia Microlot: Porfirio Mamani

The aroma after grinding and while brewing fills the room with the exotic scents of spice, cocoa, and tropical flora.

The body is soft and mild, with round hints of nutty marzipan, tropical spice, and hints of mango; particularly at lighter roasts.
The overall mouth-feel is crisp and smooth, with notes of almond and sweet chocolate.

A nice range of complexity is noticeable at the peak of the cup in the form of soft mango and spice. The finish is crisp with lingering notes of cocoa.
I should note that, as the cup cools, the complexity and body will soften but the chocolaty aftertaste becomes more pronounced.

This is a very, very nice coffee for those who want a milder, softer bodied coffee that still offers a nice complexity.

Roast Level Profile Notes
Bolivia Microlot: Porfirio Mamani

I enjoyed this wonderful Bolivian Microlot at both a City roast (for the complexity) and a Full City roast (for the chocolate).
Both have their benefits, so please check out the profile notes below when making your roast level choice.

As always, we are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.

City Roast (light roast) - Preferred

City roast will provide the most complexity in a softer body, with a brighter finish. The mouth-feel will be smooth and round, with notes of cocoa nibs, a sweet nuttiness, and spice. The finish will taper quickly with notes of tropical fruit and lingering cocoa.
This is a great choice to get the most out of the Origin Characteristics in a a milder cup.

Full City Roast (medium roast)

Full City is a great roast level for this coffee. The body will still be soft with a wonderful round mouth-feel. Notes of sweet marzipan and chocolate are prominent on the front, with spice and effervescence at the peak. The finish will be perky with notes of mango and cocoa that increase as the cup cools. Excellent!

Full City (+) Roast

If you want a little less brightness, more of a honey sweetness, and more chocolate, then this is the roast for you!
The mouth-feel will be juicy and smooth with notes of honey almond. The body will tend toward medium, while remaining soft, with mild spice at the cups peak. The finish is long and chocolaty, with hints of peach. Very nice!

Vienna Roast

A Vienna Roast will provide a perceived deeper body and a more silky mouth feel. However, this is still a mild bodied coffee so don't expect a deep booming cup. The chocolate notes become more bittersweet, and the acidity is very well tempered, losing most of the fruit. The finish will be pointed and taper quickly, with dark chocolate lingering on the palate.

French Roast

Not recommended.

Additional Information
Bolivia Microlot: Porfirio Mamani

This high quality Bolivian Microlot coffee is the result of hands on care and cultivation by Porfirio Mamani. The high altitude, soil, climate aid in the slow and profoundly wonderful profile of the coffee.

Over the past two years, Porfirio and his family have been forced to renovate their coffee farm due to devastating Coffee Rust (La Roya) attacks.
Their hard work and long hours have paid off, and they are very happy to be able to continue living and working in San Ignacio.

We pay a higher price for this coffee, but not only is it worth it, it allows Porfirio to send his children to school and put food on the table.
Porfirio hopes that his children will study agronomy when they get older, so that they will be able to use their knowledge to improve their family's sustainable production.

This is my first time buying from this importer, who is dedicated to Bolivian coffees.
Because of this outstanding Bolivian Microlot from Porfirio Mamani, I envision more great Bolivian coffees will be purchased from this importer in the future.

Bolivia love!
This coffee is delicious. Tried at the Full city + roast as both a pour over and an espresso. Both were amazing! Don't miss this one.
