Red Rooster Coffee - Bolivia Finca Tacu Java Natural - 5 lbs.

product

STORYarticle-shape

This natural processed java cultivar comes from Finca Tacu, one of 4 farms run by Pedro Rodriguez and his family in Samaipata, Bolivia. Known for its delicate cup and long-bean shape, "java” plant types are believed to have evolved from the arabica plantations of the Dutch-occupied island of Java in what is now Indonesia. Light bodied with sweet and nutty notes of praline, apricot and honeydew melon.

This natural processed java cultivar comes from Finca Tacu, one of the Rodriguez’s 4 farms around Samaipata. Bolivia’s “java” cultivar is a lighter weight coffee with a long-bean shape and delicate cups. Though rare, Latin America has a number of typica-derived “java” plant types that are believed to have evolved from the arabica plantations of the Dutch-occupied island of Java in what is now Indonesia.

Because of a lack of domestic coffee sector or governmental support, acquiring new varieties of coffee for the Rodriguez family involved traveling throughout South America and connecting with other advanced growers and breeders. Their unique java has become a kind of darling cultivar to the Rodriguez family, who uses specific fermentation tactics in fully washed processing to maximize its textures and flavors in the cup, and who loves the results of a sun-dried natural. Unlike at their central wet mill in Caranavi, naturals in Samaipata can be safely fully dried on raised beds in the sun.

Taking Good Care of Our Coffee, Our People, Our Farmers, Our Planet

Established in 2010 in downtown Floyd, VA (pop 432), Red Rooster was created with the simple notion of roasting excellent coffee for the owner’s existing coffee house. Soon, word of Red Rooster's quality spread around Virginia and up and down the East Coast.

Today, we employ 30 people while roasting some of the best coffee in the world. We are also the only coffee company in the country with a licensed on-site childcare facility for our employee's children.

While we've won numerous awards and accolades for our coffee quality, our true passion is in making a positive social impact both at home and abroad at the coffee's origin.
