ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Finca Monteblanco is a family farm managed by Rodrigo Sanchez Valencia in the tradition of coffee cultivation that began with his grandfather. Monteblanco’s 18 hectares sit on the crest of a hill, with the wet mill and drying facilities at the top, and slopes of coffee planted below. Rodrigo, his wife, and their team on the farm have been working for years to develop Finca Monteblanco as an experimental farm. In addition to cupping and evaluating each variety they find and then cultivating those with the most desirable taste profiles, Monteblanco also experiments with new and different ways to process coffees. All cherries harvested are measured for their sugar content. The team at Monteblanco then designates which processing method is appropriate. This particular coffee was selected for a natural processing method based on its sugar content, which imparts a distinctive and unique fruit-forward flavor profile. Finca Monteblanco is a very special place, and the coffees the team produces there truly capture all the hard work that goes into growing and processing them. Each harvest, Finca Monteblanco produces micro-lots that serve as competition coffees around the world. By applying an ethic of rigorous monitoring, planning, and management of each stage of production and processing, all coffees from Monteblanco showcase their full potential.
