SOLD OUT: Colombia – Monteblanco: Mint Infused Purple Caturra
$24.50 – $118.00
Introducing our INFUSION SERIES! Partnering together with Rodrigo at Finca Monteblanco we are showcasing a series of Purple Caturra varieties throughout the coming months. Each coffee is processed the same, yet fermented with different fruits and spices. So flavor notes of caramel and plum will be evident in each, a contribution of the purple caturra variety and washed processing, yet with notable infusions of various fruits and spices.
Like any other washed coffee, this purple Caturra is depulped and cleaned. Rather than sending it directly to a drying bed, however, it takes a detour to the fermenting tank where it ferments in water with activated yeast and a corresponding flavor. In this instance, mint. When tasted next to the other infusions, this lot sets itself apart with a subtly cooling aromatic and an astonishingly creamy mouthfeel.
Rodrigo’s interesting processing methods were born out of necessity. The Huila harvest, once a concentrated season of three months, now lasts the entire year, requiring a need to be constantly competitive, interesting, and delicious.
Plum, Brown Sugar, Walnut, Creamy, Breezy Mouthfeel
Wet Ferment with Mint

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!
