El Fuerte was a first experiment in developing coffee in a region that has excellent characteristics for producing amazing quality coffee (good soil conditions and high altitude), but which traditionally sees little coffee production and produces no specialty coffee. After consulting with a specialised agronomist, Agricafe (which runs the farm) chose the region of Agua Rica as the ideal location. It's at the edge of the Amboró National Park (some 20 KM east of Samaipata).

The decision to plant coffee at El Fuerte was something of a risk, but it's one that has undoubtedly paid off. The location has proved to be strategic and the weather is ideal; so much so that a second wet mill will soon be established at the site. Once it is, all coffee produced in the Samaipata farms will be processed at El Fuerte.

There's a big hit of almost malty black tea at the start - but with a spoonful of white sugar stirred in. Behind it is a rush of perfumed florals before it finishes with a shoulder of orange.
