About This Coffee (From Bold Bean's Head Roaster):
"Malacara B is a lushly forested farm on the side of the Santa Ana volcano. The property was once part of a larger farm called Medellin. Samuel Alvarez Lalinde maintained the farm most recently, until 1995 when he passed it down to his children and it was divided into Malacara A, B and C.
The Dumonts grow red, yellow, orange and pink Bourbon on their farm, Malacara B, that is located around 5,000 feet above sea level. The farm is very organized, well-maintained and farmed using sustainable practices."
