Villa Rosario is a colony in the Caranavi area of Yungus. The colony is located between 1550 and 1650 masl and is surrounded by jungle and small coffee farms. After the land reforms in the 1950s, the Bolivian government encouraged people from the Altiplano and La Paz to move down to the tropical agricultural areas to farm coffee by giving them free parcels of land. Villa Rosario was one of the settlements for people from the Altiplano, and therefore many of the coffee producers there are very small, having between 1 and 3 hectares, and practice more traditional organic farming methods. All of the producers in this area have Caturra, Catuai, or Typica, which gives the cup profile lots of acidity and complexity. 

Once picked, the cherries are taken to the Buena Vista mill in Caranavi, where they are processed and dried. The producers combine their pickings and deliver them to the mill, so this lot is a mix of coffee from a number of producers in the same area. The coffee was dried on raised beds in the mill for 15 days.
