This coffee is grown by one of the most influential coffee farming families in Bolivia – the Mamani Family.
The Mamani family used to sell their coffee to local markets as wet parchment – known locally as ‘café en mote’ – but over the last 10 years (since the arrival of the Cup of Excellence) they have processed the coffee themselves, allowing them to get a far better price for their beans and carefully control the quality.
The family work very closely together to support each other during the harvest. Together the family share a small nursery and wet mill. Living so close to each other allows them to share resources such as pickers during the harvest, and share best practice between them. In addition to helping each other, the Mamani family have also played a significant role within their colony of Uchumachi over the last decade, and have worked closely with their neighbours to institute improved agricultural practices to improve coffee quality.
Over the last 15 years, the Mamani family have worked with Agricafe to mill, market and sell their coffee. Agricafe is a Bolivian family business which produces coffee from its own farms and sources high quality micro-lots from small producers of the Yungas region, like the Mamani family.
