New Ponaire Bernardo Condori Bolivian Single Origin Coffee

For several years, our broker, Belco, has have been supporting the national tournament “Taza de Calidad Evo Morales”, first by participating in the pre-selection of coffees, then by integrating the jury of the competition. Following the visit of Cesar, Belco’s quality manager, Belco managed to buy lots directly from some producers, who, although not officially certified, work all their farms in organic agriculture. 91% of Bolivian coffee is produced in the region of La Paz, with a main model of organic family farming that averages 2-3 hectares of coffee area. Between 1990 and 2017, production decreased from 156,000 to 31,000 bags of 60 kilos with a yield decreasing from 15 to 5 bags. The municipality of Caranavi, La Paz region, is considered the coffee capital of the country.

This microlot selected here is produced by Bernardo Condori Carnajal. He has a farm of 10 hectares, 3 of which are dedicated to coffee in the department of La Paz. On the farm they use the pulp from the coffee cherries as organic fertiliser.

This is the first time Ponaire has sourced coffee from Bolivia and we now wonder why it took us so long!

Meet the Grower

Pazenda Palmital, in the mountains of the Serra So Pau S’Alho in the district of Cabo Verde, southern Minas Gerais, was purchased in the 1920s by Joaquim Sebastião de Souza, the current owner’s grandfather. Over the years, Fazenda Palmital has built a tradition of producing top quality coffee in a sustainable way. All workers have full legal benefits. The farm also provides employees and their families with free transportation to primary and secondary schools and medical care in Cabo Verde. In 1950 the farm’s management passed to Augusto de Melo Souza’s Hands. In the 1970s his wife and son started to take care of the property and the family’s offspring is getting ready to take over the farm as he is studying agriculture. Their dedication to the plantation and natural aptitude to it led the average annual production to rise from 2,00 to 6,500 bags of 60kg. The entire farm is handpicked due to the altitude and character of the land, and they have several animals including monkeys, snakes, wild cats, spiders, birds, anteaters, toucans, jaguar, horses and chickens present in the fields.
