Female Talent in the Coffee Industry 

Claudia is the head producer of the Monteblanco project. As a woman leader in the coffee industry of Huila she is responsible for the production of 55 productive hectares of coffee crops.

Claudia didn’t achieve these big responsibilities in one step, on the contrary, she had been in the specialty coffee industry for approximately 20 years. She had the opportunity to live 6 months in London where she reinforced her knowledge of specialty coffees and was certified as a Q-Grader in the CQI. She currently stands as one of the pioneers in the region in getting out of the traditional coffee line, and innovating with fermentation processes with added organic matter.

The farms operate under the premise of excellent soil nutrition to guarantee constant production. As a result, they have been recognized on several occasions for their exceptional production model of exotic varieties of 88+pts coffee. This is a result of her strategy and quality control team that consists of more than 10 people that are dedicated exclusively to post-harvest quality.

The Monteblanco washed coffee illustrates the characteristics of coffee from the Huila Region. Huila is one of Colombia’s southernmost coffee zones located in a high altitude that is suitable for a high scoring coffee production. Farms from this region are also frequently set in a large plateau landscape, being much easier to harvest coffee than Antioquia’s dramatic mountain landscape.

Monteblanco’s most traditional coffee, the washed, is processed in a special way, beginning with depulping cherries the same day they are harvested. Then the coffee beans are fully washed with clean water and dried on african beds for several days. As a result, the Monteblanco signature coffee displays special notes of orange with chocolate, sugar cane, dry yellow fruits and nuts with a delightful sweet aftertaste.
