Rodriguez family - pioneers of specialty coffee in Bolivia
SL 34 variety
Kenyan varieties SL34 and SL28 and their various mutations have got very popular in Latin America in recent years. SL is an abbreviation for Scott Laboratories which came with these two varieties and was found in Nairobi in 1922. These varieties are well known for its fosforic acidity which can take a lot of shades of flavours such as notes of fresh citrus fruit, heavy red wine or juicy red currant juice.
According to Daniela Rodriguez, these varieties are doing really well at the farm and so the family plans to increase their production. And we are thrilled as SL34 was one of the most interesting cofffees we tasted in Bolivia last year.
