Pedro Flores, El Mirador, Bolivia
Pedro Flores has a small 10 hectare farm located in the ‘colony’ or settlement of Villa Rosario, which is located the heart of the Caranavi province. This region is the epicentre for coffee production in Bolivia, with incredibly high altitudes, rich soil and wide daily temperature ranges providing the perfect conditions to produce exceptional quality coffee.

Pedro's farm, El Mirador, is located 1,550 - 1,650m above sea level. The farm is planted with heirloom Caturra, Catuaí, and Typica varieties, and harvest runs from May to September, peaking in June and July. The coffee trees grow in a rich clay soil under the protective shade of native forest trees, whose heavy leaf fall creates a natural mulch fertiliser, and whose canopy provides an important habitat for the many bird and insect species in the area.
