The current single origin Bolivian coffee we have in stock we think has an exceptionally smooth, rich and full-flavour - perfectly balanced with a nice sweet finish.
Sometimes a single-origin coffee will be one dimensional - it could be sweet, clean, bright, etc, but not this one. Here we have come across a bean that is very complete and able to stand alone with its complex flavours and superb balance.
The single origin Bolivia FTO coffee beans are exceptional.
