René is one of the members of AGRICAFE'S Sol de la Mañana program which lends agronomist support and credit and helps secure specialty market access for smallholder farms under the AGRICAFE umbrella. We've bought coffees from René, his brother Juan, and sister-in-law Juana for 5 seasons now. Some people don't recognize good washed Bolivian coffee. It's subtle, clean and beautiful. As this year's tasting notes suggest, this coffee lends itself well to an espresso profile, so we're starting there.
