Rodrigo Sanchez Valencia at Finca Monteblanco
Finca Monteblanco, located high along the winding mountain roads of Vereda La Tocora in the San Adolfo municipality above Pitalito, 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.
We were connected to Rodrigo and his team by our friends at Ally Coffee Importers. While our relationship is still with Rodrigo, we were immediately intrigued by his series of fruit and spice fermented coffees. The consistency and quality of processing were immediately perceived as the coffees were exotic, yet extremely balanced. Eager to see this new relationship develop, keep a look out for Rodrigo’s coffees in our portfolio throughout the 2020-2021 season!
