The coffee story

Sat in the high hills of Bolivia’s coffee heartland, Taypiplaya was established more than 25 years ago by migrants from the altiplano (high lands) of the Potosi department.

Today, the community relies on income from coffee and citrus production for their livelihoods. The area planted with coffee in which farm is small, from 1 to 2 hectares. Producers keep the rest of their land as wild forests. The soil in this region is very rich, the elevation goes from 1,500 to 1850 m.a.s.l and the weather is subtropical. Caturra, Catuai and Bourbon are the main varietals and they grow mixed.

In 2018, many families from the colony Taypiplaya joined our program "Sol De La Mañana" in order to reactivate coffee production in that region.

Agricafe is a Bolivian family business that produces coffee from its own farms and sources high-quality micro-lots from small producers in the regions of Los Yungas and Santa Cruz. As pioneers within South American specialty coffee, Agricafe initially entered the coffee industry in 1986, when Pedro Rodriguez decided to pursue his passion for agriculture. Over 34 years later, he has seen and lived the ups and downs of Bolivian coffee and is now working along with his daughter Daniela and his son Pedro Pablo. The trio runs the company with the idea of restoring and improving Bolivian coffee by launching producer training programs and planting own farms across the above-mentioned regions.
