Bolivia Finca Floripondio Coco Natural Geisha
Floripondio is one of the more recent farms planted near Smaipata in Santa Cruz, where we've been experimenting with growing speciality coffee in a region not known for coffee production.
Due to its high altitude, a tropical microclimate characterized by high humidity and at times cool temperatures, and a distinct soil profile. Floripondio is the ideal location for experimenting with different coffee varieties. To date, we've planted over 50 varieties at the farm and hope to discover which are best suited to the land and this particular latitude and altitude. To separate the different varieties we've kept the original lemon and tangerine trees on the farm and sell the fruit to the local markets.
Floripondio gets its name from the Floripondio trees (commonly known as Angel's Trumpet in English) that are native to the area and grow on the farm. The flower is thought to possess some hallucinogenic properties, and legend has it that as soon as you lay down beneath a Floripondio tree you start dreaming. This is apt, as the natural scenery at Floripondio is breathtakingly beautiful and can at times, seem like something out of a dream.
