Alasitas was the first farm Drop Coffee started buying from in Bolivia, back in 2015. The Gesha grown here is improved to have stronger roots to take the cool and steep landscape. We always taste the coffees blindly, and the washed processed Gesha from Alasitas is ultimately always our highest scoring coffee. We have bought it every year since we started working with Alasitas, and every year the Gesha flavour gets a little more pronounced; delicate, well balanced and floral. 

You can see a video from a few years back with our green buyer, Joanna, Pedro and Daniel a of Alasitas on this youtube-link where they share more about their production and vision. 

About the Rodriguez family
Those of you who have been buying Bolivian coffees from us, already know Pedro, Daniela and Pedro Pablo quite well. The Rodriguez family owns their own mills, processing and exporting coffee for farmers in the Caranarvi and Sud Yungas region. Since 1986, Pedro has been sourcing coffee from small coffee producers, but the steady decline in coffee production has put the sustainability of their export business in jeopardy. Without the intervention of people like the Rodriguez family, however, the future of coffee production in Bolivia is at risk of disappearing.  The family has taken on the challenge of increasing the production of coffee in Bolivia by planting their own new coffee plantations, which Alasitas is a school book example of, producing the best coffee in Bolivia if you ask us. 

Sustainability 
The Rodriguez family has in the last three years introduced a sustainability model for the producers who supply them at their mill and built this on three pillars: economical sustainability, social understanding, and environmental awareness - Sol de Mañana. the business model got the SCA Sustainability Award for Sustainable Business model.  

As a part of our price transparency, we are sharing the FOB prices for the coffee, which for this coffee was US$15/lb.
