Our newest coffee from Angel Mamani offers a distinct champurrado (sweet chocolate rice porridge), melon, peach and floral aroma. The cup translates a bright and sweet fusion of green apples,
cherries, saskatoon berries with a sweet chestnut, almond and dark chocolate nuances. It also offers a full body with just the right amount of acidity; a great coffee to drink either hot or iced.
Angel Mamani’s coffee was a National Jury Winner at the 2009 Bolivia Cup of Excellence and was sent to the International Jury. It failed to make it into the international winners and related auction. Sometimes a not-so-great roast can be a factor, or a jury getting calibrated to the local coffees, and sometimes it is justified. But generally, looking among some of the National winners of such competitions can yield coffees of distinction and surprising value; such is the case here.
