Finca Monteverde was given to Gildardo Gutierrez by his father Oscar Gutierrez 40 years ago. Since 2004, the goal and philosophy of farm has been to move towards specialty production. Three of Gildardo’s siblings are now licensed Q Graders who have dedicated part of their work to advising Gildardo on planting new varietals for the specialty market. The Gutierrez family have been coffee growers for five generations in the south of Tolima, where they own a micromill, hand sorting each batch for processing. (NB- be careful not to spell as 'Columbia' when writing to a native Colombian, they do not appreciate it!)
