About Bolivia - Yulissa Chambi Anaerobic

As the initial release of our new line of limited release FreeForm Reserve coffees, we are pleased to present a stunning microlot from young Bolivian producer, Yulissa Chambi.

FreeForm Reserve is our newest project, an opportunity for us to showcase the finest offerings from innovative coffee farmers around the world.  In this case, our first release may also very well be indicative of the future of coffee.  

Produced by 21-year-old Yulissa Chambi, the latest in the line of a family of coffee producers who have been growing coffee in Bolivia for 60 years, this coffee has been processed using a hugely popular new experimental process known as "anaerobic washed."  Like all washed coffees, the cherries are depulped and set to ferment in water with their own unique microbiotics.  The difference here, however, is that the fermentation happens in an oxygen-free environment, hence the term "anaerobic."  Producers have found that by eliminating oxygen from the fermentation process, the coffees often showcase an intense fruitiness that is typically associated with the "natural process," but with the clean cup washed coffees are known for.  As fans of both natural and washed coffees, these new experimental anaerobic coffees represent the best of both worlds.

About the Producer

Coffee has been grown in Bolivia for hundreds of years, but until recently it had not been on the short list of regions known for producing high-quality specialty coffee.  Incentivized by new funding and support for specialty coffee production from Bolivia's federal government, a new generation of innovative young coffee farmers are taking the stage, set to put Bolivia on the map of the world's best coffee producing origins.

The center in this new rise in specialty coffee can be found in the Los Yungas region of Bolivia, where the majority of coffee farms were first established during Bolivia's Agrian Revolution in the 1950s.  This special lot comes from a ten-acre farm, first established in the Yungas region by the Chambi family over over 60 years ago.

Yulissa Chambi, just 21 years old, has been working to modernized her family's coffee farm while attending university nearby.  This anaerobic lot is her first release as a producer, and if the exceptional quality of this coffee is any indication, she has a long and successful career ahead as a sought-after Bolivian producer.

About FreeForm Reserve

With extremely limited availability and a notably higher green coffee cost, FreeForm Reserve coffees will be available for pre-order only.  We intend to roast this coffee every-other-week until it is sold out.  The Yulissa Chambi Anaerobic release is limited to just 100 8oz bags, each of which will be individually numbered and packaged in our new 8oz kraft bag with gold foil printing.

FreeForm Reserve releases are only available as whole bean coffee, and we highly recommend that you enjoy these coffees within a month from the roast date.  

The next available roast and shipment date are listed below the "Add to Cart" button.
