This variety was first planted at Finca El Progreso in 2013. This was a cooperative project with several producers in the region searching for genetic improvements to their coffee plants. In 2016, this Geisha’s first crops performed excellently in their cupping even though the crop itself had a difficult time adapting.

Rodrigo Sanchez has taken the finest seeds from his lot at Finca El Progreso and has created a second lot at his other farm Finca Monteblanco. This is a wet process coffee. In a wet process, water is used to remove the cherry from the seed before allowing the seeds to ferment and later dried.

About Rodrigo Sanchez:

Hub Latte Art Comp-343-2.jpg

Mark Trujillo, owner of The Hub, met Rodrigo on an origin trip to Colombia in 2013. Over the last four years, Mark and Rodrigo have worked collaboratively to bring Rodrigo's coffees to Reno. It began small with a few hundred pounds of his farm's signature Caturra the El Progreso. We are now able to source five different varieties, including some that are very unique to Rodrigo's farms that you would not find anywhere else.

Rodrigo recently won first place in the Yara Championship, a competition to find the best cup of coffee in Colombia.

We are very proud of our relationship with Rodrigo and look forward to maintaining our strong connection and mutual interest in each others success.
