Agricafe is owned by the Rodriguez family who started this business in 1986. At that time, the family used to rent wet mills in the Caranavi region, buying cherries from 2,000 producers and in 2001 they built their current wet mill, called Buena Vista, in Caranavi. Very quickly a dry mill in la Paz was built and the family started exporting operations. In 2012 they decided to buy land and start farming as well. They now have 8 farms in the Caranavi region and 5 farms in the Samaipata region. They produce coffee, process it at the wet mill then dry mill and export it themselves directly. The family has also started a training program called Sol de la Mañana: 51 producers are now part of the program and are trained by the Agricafe team to produce more and better coffee with their existing farms. As a result of that, many producers’ kids have studied agronomy/biology/soil dynamics, etc. and are planning to come back and manage the farm with their parents. All those producers deliver cherries or parchment to Buena Vista Mill where they get paid premium prices. The Villa Rosario is a community blend of 40 families who lives in the region and produce coffee. They are as well members of the Sol de la Mañana program. This lot is washed processed and the final cup is very clean and sweet.
