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. Reaching the highest point of the farm is an experience in itself – as you travel along the winding, steep roads in a four-wheel-drive you’ll pass very neat and perfectly spaced rows of coffee with a diversity of native and timber trees that create an ideal shade for the coffee plantations.
La Llama is the highest of all of the Los Rodriguez farms, sitting at 1,650m above sea level. At this high altitude, temperatures are mild during the day and cold at night. This helps ensure a slow maturation of the cherry, which leads to an increased concentration of sugars in the cherry and bean, producing a sweeter cup of coffee. Early in the morning or late afternoon, it is very common to find a mystic fog covering the coffee plants of the exotic variety lot of SL28, SL34 and Geisha. This is caused by a special microclimate, with changing temperatures, and soil very rich in minerals, perfect for the coffee plants to grow properly. La Llama, Agricafe’s highest altitude farm in Caranavi, is named after the llama, Bolivia’s most emblematic animal.
