The Rodriguez family’s approach to coffee production has been extremely methodical, innovative and scientific. Along the way, they consulted leading specialty coffee agronomists from around the world to help them produce exceptional coffee and build sustainable and healthy farms. A wide range of varieties have been trialed, along with different farming techniques, to optimise quality and output. They have carefully documented their findings at every step of the way and continue to innovate and invest in improvements to produce the very best quality coffee they can. The farms are vibrant, luscious and healthy, and produce exceptional quality and yields. This 100% Caturra comes from a new farm called Finca La Llama. This farm has only been in harvest since 2017, and its production is still small but of exceptional quality. The small ten-hectare farm is located in the settlement of Villa Rosario, which lies in a lush, steep mountain valley just outside of the town of Caranavi. La Llama is owned by the Rodriguez family, who also own a business called Agricafe, which produces coffee from its own farms and also sources quality micro-lots from small producers in the Yungas region. Today Agricafe has 12 farms and around 130 hectares of coffee under the banner of ‘Fincas Los Rodriguez’. Seven of these are in Caranavi, in the department of La Paz, and the remaining five are in Samaipata, in the department of Santa Cruz in Bolivia’s east.
