These beans offer some truly top quality notes. Preserved as best as we can through a light roast profile, you’ll notice bright citrus notes and a medium-creamy body, offering any lover of complex coffee beans something to marvel at. Enjoy this one black with a pour over method like the Chemex or V60 and you’ll see what we’re talking about.
The Monteblanco estate is led by Rodrigo Sanchez, a true Huilense with undying love and passion for coffee. As a fourth-generation producer in his family of dedicated coffee growers, Rodrigo uses the same land his ancestors have tended for over a century to expand the already impressive reputation of the estate by focusing on even higher standards of coffee production and specialty beans.
After being selected as part of the acclaimed quality assurance selection of Palestina Huila in 2002, Rodrigo decided to take production to another level by experimenting with unusual varietals to see what he could discover.
With the help of his wife Claudia Milena, they planted Pink Bourbon, Gesha, Purple Caturra, Bourbon Teikisic, and Red Caturras. The results have been fantastic.
