Finca Peña Blanca
Rudy is a hard working, innovative small producer and De La Finca family member. After his larger plantation at a lower elevation was taken by roya, Rudy concentrated his effort on his smaller, two acre plot of higher elevation specialty coffee. This coffee scored very high and is our first family coffee to be entered into the Cup of Excellence. It won 1st place at a local competition in Esquias scoring 91 points and advanced to nationals but unfortunately, due to not producing a full lot (18 bags), it was disqualified.
Relationship with De La Finca:
Rudy is a member of the De La Finca family of producers. He is the cousin of De La Finca owner, Nelson. When he heard we were going to import specialty coffee, he began modernizing his drying beds and other production methods. We're excited to share his coffee this year!
