The Producers

Rodrigo Sanchez Valencia and Claudia Samboni, the couple behind Finca La Loma, Finca Monteblanco and Finca El Progreso, have poured their heart and soul into coffee farming innovation to push the ever-evolving boundaries of the coffee industries. 

The adventurous Snr Rodrigo cares about coffee innovation so much that the farm have their own laboratories in La Loma to research and develop their own best farming practices, including specific processing method for different varietal from different farms under their management. 

Finca Monteblanco's most recent innovation has been the introduction of additives - before processing cherry, Rodrigo combines a mixture of 10 different yeasts to promote fermentation. Finally, he adds a sugar-rich mixture to facilitate the fermentation, such as molasses, panela or granulated sugar. The mixture is sealed and fermented for 8 days.

Processing Method

Compared to other cultivars, purple caturra was chosen for its naturally high sugar content - which is vital in a variety of processing procedures.

As the name suggests, passion fruit is used in this processing method.

However, rather than crudely fermenting the coffees alongside passionfruits, Snr Rodrigo Sanchez uses lactic acid bacteria and yeasts formed from various parent bacteria cultures like Saccharomyces cerevisiae and lactic acid bacteria using microbes found in the environment. These bacterias and yeasts were fed with passion fruit during cultivaiton.

Passion fruit adds not only flavour, but it also acts as sugar, allowing the mother cultures to continue to grow. To achieve the desired pH and sugar levels, the mother cultures must be grown for roughly 190
