Bolivia Irupana - Tico Coffee Roasters

Bolivia Irupana


Coffee has been in Bolivia for hundreds of years, but now a new generation of coffee farmers dedicated to producing high-quality coffee are taking the stage in Bolivia. For the first time in the country’s history, green coffee production has funding and support from the federal government, fueling the search for knowledge among dedicated young coffee professionals.

The epicenter in the rise of Bolivian specialty coffee is in the los Yungas region, where most farms were first established after a wave of migration to the region caused by Bolivia’s Agrarian Revolution in the 1950s.

And nearly a century later this lot emerges from a single small farm belonging to Fausto Machaca and his family. The 4-acre farm located near Caranaví in the Irupana municipality. Fausto and his family have been growing organic coffees in the Yungas region of Bolivia for over 50 years.

Fausto carefully harvests the cherry, depulps, ferments, washes, and dries the coffee on patios and raised beds.
