This tiny 240kg Java micro-lot is from a small and relatively new farm called Waliki. The name is Ayamara greeting meaning “how’s everything” to which the answer is ‘all good’ or ‘Hakuna Matata’.
Waliki is located in the colony of Bolinda, which lies in a lush, steep mountain valley around 10 kilometres outside of the town of Caranavi, in the department of La Paz in Bolivia. The colony of Bolinda was founded 52 years ago and was once known as ‘Bolivia Linda’ or ‘Beautiful Bolivia’. Over the years this name was shortened to Bolinda, and it is now one of the larger settlements in the area.
Waliki is owned by the Rodriguez family. The Rodriguez family has a family business called Agricafe, that produces coffee from its own farms, and sources quality micro-lots from small producers in the Yungas region.

HOW THIS COFFEE WAS PROCESSED

At Waliki, pickers from Bolinda community are hired to carefully handpick the coffee during the harvest. These pickers are trained to select only the very ripest cherries, and multiple passes are made through the farm throughout the harvest to ensure the coffee is picked at its prime.
After being picked and weighed this coffee was carefully washed and laid out to dry on raised African beds and turned every hour. After about one week on the raised bed, the coffee was placed in a coco dryer. We have not seen coco dryers used in coffee before, however, Pedro is always innovating and trialling different processing techniques, and found that these driers help to dry the coffee slowly and consistently. The coffee sits in the large steel vats for around 35 hours at temperatures no higher than 40 ˚C and is turned every 30 minutes.
