A 12oz bag of whole-bean coffee.
Like the purple caturra, this variety started from an old, small lot on Rodrigo’s grandfather's farm which was later passed down to his parents. This coffee stands out visually because of its particular coloring.
This variety has done very well at Finca Monteblanco and they are very proud of its flavor and potential. 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. Rodrigo recently received 1st place in the Yara International Yara Champions Best Colombian Cup of Coffee competition for the Pink Bourbon.
TASTING NOTES:Tropical fruit, lychee, honey, rose, floral, caramel, bright and elegant.
About Rodrigo Sanchez:
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.
