Yes, Bolivians are back (in case you missed it!) 8)

In the cup this starts on peach squash – sweet but not sharp. It's got a lovely smooth texture, which carries it through to finish on a delicate melon note. On top of all that, it's got an aftertaste that makes me think 'Flumps' (that's a delicious British marshmallow treat if you've somehow missed them!)

Nice cloud sequence

I'm a bit puzzled by the political bit. Sometimes the government have an influence on coffee (Ethiopia ECX as an example) but in this case I can't see the relevance to coffee and it is probably best left to somewhere other than IMM.

Politics in Bolivia play a huge part in coffee. The president has pushed growing coca as a way of life over coffee, which has meant many small holder farmers moving their crops. Trying to mix up the content a little as there is only so many things you can say about a farm year on year, and make it interesting and fun for me. That part took quite a bit of research which I loved doing.

Lovely indeed

I do understand the 'keeping it different' aspect. Perhaps if you had mentioned the government encouraging coca growing instead of coffee ;-)
