Bolivia Microlot - Lucio Mamani

Organic, Fully Washed, Dried on Raised Beds

Exotic Fruit, Spice, Chocolate, Sweet

This is a another wonderful Bolivian Microlot from grower Lucio Mamani.
Lucio's farm, Finca El Mirador, is located high in the Bolivian mountains at 5,300 ft.
El Mirador is 11 hectares, and is very productive for a farm so small.

Lucio 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 - Lucio Mamani

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

The body is medium-soft, with round hints of almond, spice, and hints of exotic fruit; particularly at lighter roasts.
The overall mouth-feel is crisp and smooth, with notes of nuts and sweet chocolate.

A nice range of complexity is noticeable at the peak of the cup in the form of soft plum 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 with good complexity, body, and profile.
If you are a fan of Bolivian coffee, you will be well pleased!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Bolivia Microlot - Lucio 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 red 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 medium-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 plum, cocoa, and cherry 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 notes of dark cherry. 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 - Lucio Mamani

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

We pay a higher price for this coffee, but not only is it worth it, it allows Lucio to send his children to school and put food on the table.
Lucio 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.

The country’s low production, select few producer groups in the specialty game, and formidable logistical challenges, means each and every arrival is something to be cherished.

Harmony in a cup.
This month marks my 5th anniversary as a Storehouse customer, and I'm so glad i discovered Joe and his consistently superior coffees. I've never had a bad bag of coffee from Storehouse, but I do have my favorites, such as offerings from Sumatra, Guatemala, and Papua New Guinea. However, this month I tried the Bolivian Lucio Mamani, and what a great choice it was! The thing I like about this coffee is that nothing dominates the taste; it's just mellow and well-rounded, the kind of coffee that is great any time of day - morning, noon, or night. I ordered the Full City roast, which is superb, but I believe this coffee would also be delicious at a darker roast level. If you like good, rich coffee flavor, with nothing dominating, and everything blending together in perfect harmony, go mellow, and give this Bolivian a try.

I adore this coffee. I tried many of the central and south American coffees and this is the one I return to again and again. Very flavorful.
