Finca Floripondio is one of the most recent farms to be planted near Samaipata in Santa Cruz by the Rodriguez family, they've been experimenting with growing coffee in a region not at all known for coffee production and have been getting amazing results! The farm was planted in 2014, sits at an altitude of 1,710 metres above sea level and has 47.29 hectares of coffee-producing land.
Due to its high altitude, a tropical microclimate characterised by high humidity and at times cool temperatures, and a distinct soil profile, Floripondio is the ideal location for experimenting with different coffee varietals. To date, they've planted over 50 different varietals at the farm and hope to discover which are best suited to the land and this particular latitude and altitude. To separate the different varietals they've kept the original lemon and tangerine trees on the farm and also sell the fruit they produce at the local markets.
Batian is a leaf rust-resistant varietal from Kenya that's thought to have one of the better cup profiles of the resistant strains. A variety resistant to coffee leaf rust and coffee berry disease created at the Coffee Research Station (CRS; now the Coffee Research Institute, CRI) in Ruiru, Kenya.
Expect white sugar with lime at the start, with an edge of black tea and blackcurrant coming along after. The fruitiness shifts in the finish as milk chocolate lingers at the end.
