Description

Bolivia Tacu

Tacu washing station is located in Samaipata region, near Santa Cruz, the second biggest city in Bolivia. The region has a sub tropical climate with an 18 degree latitude and the harvest runs from July to November for the whole region. Bolivia Tacu.

It’s a tiny farm of 1.5 ha managed by Jair Gonzales. He was born in Cochambamba and moved to Santa Cruz 6 years ago where he now lives during the off season. Lime trees are intercropped with red Caturra at 1,650 masl. The main problem in this farm is the presence of many snakes that makes the harvest very difficult so pickers always bring garlic with them to keep the snakes away. Most of the pickers come from other cities: Cochabamba or Sucre and they spend the 3 months of the harvest in Samaipata.

This lot is a semi-washed lot, mechanically processed and dried on raise beds under shade for 2 weeks before it was delivered to the dry mill in La Paz.

In La Paz, after milling, cupping and after making sure the moisture content is around 11%, the coffee is bagged in Ecotact and jute bags before being exported through Arica port in Chile.
