Rodrigo Sanchez, Monteblanco, Purple Caturra
This is a single varietal coffee, purple caturra, from producer Rodrigo Sanchez of the farm Monteblanco in the Huila region of Colombia. Rodrigo is a third generation coffee farmer, and owns four farms in the Huila region. Purple caturra is an older varietal that was a mutation of regular caturra that is often found in Colombia. The plant produces rich copper/purple leaves when new, and the cherries themselves are a darker tint than normal.
This coffee is full of flavor, body and still fairly clean for being naturally processed. It has a nice Plum and raisin sweetness, a mellow soft lime acidity and bitter chocolate body. It is a great everyday cup, and is well suited for pour-overs, espresso and even stands up to milk drinks great.
This coffee was grown and produced without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or fungicides
