Bolivian Coffee Overview

Bolivia is a Central American country about three times the size of Montana with two ranges of the Andes Mountains inside its borders. This gives the country three distinct regions:

  • Mountain regions
  • Semitropical mountain slopes
  • Tropical lowlands

Of these three, its the semitropical slopes that produce 95% of Bolivia’s coffee, which is overwhelmingly Arabica.

Like many other nations with ideal yet challenging geographies, Bolivia has poor infrastructure that makes post-harvest quality control an issue. While this relegated the country to being an afterthought in blends, increasingly we’re seeing higher quality Bolivian coffee beans hitting the market.
