Rodrigo Sanchez and his wife and daughter are the producers in charge of Finca el Progreso and Monteblanco. Rodrigo and his family have been producing coffee for almost 15 years. Recently, Rodrigo has been inspired to experiment with coffee processing methods as well as variety specific lot separation. With the help of Jairo Ruiz of Banexport, Rodrigo opened Monteblanco, a farm devoted to variety specific lot separation.
Rodrigo’s curiosity with lot separation started when he discovered “La Caturra Purpura,” or Purple Caturra, which was a mutation in the development of leaf growth in his Caturra trees. It only occurred in 26 trees out of a 20,000 tree lot. Excited about this discovery, Rodrigo went on to plant an entire lot of this unique variety at Monteblanco.
Rodrigo is clearly an innovative coffee producer with fresh ideas that are pushing our industry in new directions. As a roaster in an industry that strives for innovation, we cannot help but be inspired by his willingness to take risks by exploring new ideas to improve his trade.
