• A cool Andean morning calls for a hot Andean beverage. In La Paz you can choose from coffee or a steaming cup of api, also called chicha morada. While chicha often refers to boozy-type beverages, chicha morada is not the Bolivian equivalent of Irish coffee. Non-alcoholic, it’s made from purple corn that’s been boiled with pineapple, cinnamon, clove and sugar—all of which make it the perfect spicy-sweet belly-warmer when it’s 25° outside.
