Four Leaf Roasters is proud to offer a specialty micro-lot coffee as part of our 100-year celebration – available for a limited time, and in very limited quantities.
A SHARED COMMITMENT TO TRADITION AND INNOVATION
Finca Monteblanco is a farm located along the winding mountain roads of the Vereda La Tocora in the San Adolfo municipality above Pitalito, Huila in Colombia. It is a beautiful family farm managed by Rodrigo Sanchez Valencia and his wife Claudia Sambon. Rodrigo and his family demonstrate the same entrepreneurial mix of tradition and innovation that has helped Shamrock Foods achieve 100 years of growth and prosperity.
Building on the tradition that began with his grandfather, Rodrigo innovated his farming to account for different cupping profiles. In doing so, he made more distinct connections between traditional farming techniques and the coffees’ resulting attributes in the cup.
During harvest, this lot of beans went through natural processing, where ripe cherries were placed in a solar dryer for five days, and dried for an additional 22 days on raised beds in the shade. The water content of the coffee cherries was closely monitored throughout the process, until they reached the desired 10.5-11% moisture. By applying an ethic of rigorous monitoring, planning, and management at each stage of production and processing, this bean showcases its luscious character.
EXPERIENCE THE COFFEE ROAST BUILT ON FAMILY
Smooth and inviting, Familia’s medium roast profile accentuates the natural characteristics of the Caturra bean, resulting in complex flavors of red wine and sweet dark chocolate. We recommend sipping this coffee as it cools to experience the layers of flavor as they unfold.
We’re honored to uphold the Shamrock tradition of bringing family together...just like we did a hundred years ago, just like we will for countless birthdays still to come. Treat your guests to a masterpiece of flavor. Contact your Shamrock Sales Representative for more information or add FAMILIA to your next order.
