Bolivia

Todd Carmichael begins his Bolivian journey short of breath at 12,000 feet in the world's highest capital, La Paz. The Andes Mountains have every ingredient necessary to produce incredible coffee, but coffee plants are hard to find because of a much more profitable cash crop, coca -- the plant used to make cocaine.
