The UK coffee crowd has been gaining momentum for quite some time now, and we were lucky enough to get to sample this gem from Has Bean, a coffee-roasting and home-brewing supply company out of Stafford, UK.
The Bolivia Machacamarca washed coffee was the end result in a relationship Has Bean made with farmers Maria and Mario Nina Lupe del Rosario Andrade of Bolivia, with the representatives of the roasting company flying there to give the coffee a try firsthand. Has Bean describes the Bolivian Machacamarca as rich, deep chocolate with a slight green grape acidity, which we ended up describing as peach, with a spicy and clean finish.
