Juan & Juana submit coffees farmed from their own individual plots as well as shared lots like this one.  Juan's younger brother and next door neighbor is René, whose coffee we featured last month. The Mamanis are members of Agricafe's Sol de la Mañana program and each year their coffees are better and better - they have built the infrastructure to stabilize and improve quality and yield.  Uchumachi is about an hour's drive from the mill in Caranavi, however, this lot was pulped, washed and dried on raised beds in their front yard then delivered to the mill for further processing. This year's lot shows subtle stone fruit and honey in the cupand is very clean and balanced with a cashew-like body.
