This very special 900kg Yellow Caturra micro-lot comes from a new farm called Finca La Llama which was established in 2015. This farm has only been in harvest since 2017, and this year its production is small but also exceptional quality. The small ten hectare farm is located in the ‘colonia’ (settlement) of Villa Rosario, which lies in a lush, steep mountain valley just outside of the town of Caranavi.

La Llama is owned by Pedro Rodriguez. Over the last decade, Rodriguez has worked tirelessly to build the production of, and market for, Bolivian specialty coffee, helping hundreds of local farmers recognise and realise the potential of their land and crops.

Pedro Rodriguez entered the coffee industry 30 years ago, ditching his suit and his accounting job to pursue a passion for agriculture. Fifteen years ago, Pedro recognised the potential for specialty coffee in Bolivia, and over the last decade he has built a visionary business called Agricafe, which produces its own coffee, as well as focusing on forging long-term relationships with producers, based on mutual trust and benefit.

La Llama is the highest of all of the farms, sitting at 1,650m above sea level. This high altitude helps to ensure a slow maturation of the cherry because of the stable night-time temperature and mild day temperatures. The slow maturation leads to an increased concentration of sugars in the cherry and bean, which in turns helps to produce a sweeter cup of coffee.
