Rodriguez Family

One of the most exciting recent developments in coffee is the sharing of information and varieties between producers of different countries. Not only does it create new, exciting flavours to enjoy, but it also reveals where a coffee's distinct flavours originate. This SL28 is a great example. For a long time, this variety was almost never seen outside of Kenya–where producers choose it for its drought-resistance and high cup quality. Kenyan SL28s are known to have red fruit flavours and great acidity. Producers outside of Bolivian have recognized the value of this variety and started to plant it around the world–including in Bolivia. Tasting a Bolivian SL28 reveals where the variety's contribution to flavour ends and where terroir and processing begin. The increase in coffees that are produced through producers exploring the work of other countries contributes new flavours in coffee and reveals a great depth of knowledge on how flavour is developed in coffee. The Rodriguez family is always pushing the envelope in processing and varieties; we have the privilege of enjoying and celebrating their work.
