Oh the irony

Naively, I thought that while volunteering with coffee farmers, drinking top quality coffee would be a daily occurrence.  Not so!  The coffee available here is instant Nescafé.  The good stuff is exported since the price is better on the international market.  Besides, Bolivians tend to opt for drinking mate (tea).  Thus I find myself on an unexpected caffeine detox, missing my usual allongés, but happily developing a taste for coca mate.
