Bolivia San Lorenzo Yulissa Chambi
Thursday, July 13, 2023
Grown exceptionally high at 1,525 meters on a 10-acre farm in San Lorenzo, Bolivia, is a coffee unlike any you’ve had before. We taste notes of buttered biscuit, strawberry, and marshmallow. An anaerobic-washed mix of Red Catuai and Typica beans, Bolivia San Lorenzo Yulissa Chambi is a Roaster’s Choice selection you won’t want to miss.
At just 22 years old, Yulissa Chambi is carrying on her family’s rich, 60-year-old legacy of producing at the heart of Bolivian specialty coffee. Chambi is equal parts student, working towards her degree, and careful steward of her lots. All Chambi’s coffee is mindfully harvested, depulped, fermented in sealed tanks, washed, and dried on patios and raised beds.
We were lucky enough to get some of Chambi’s coffee for October 2022’s Roaster’s Choice, and this month has us just as excited to continue helping power the next generation of Bolivian coffee producers. We’re proud to support both Bolivia’s centuries-old heritage and their bright, coffee-driven future.
