Jorge Monge is the proud third generation owner of the Las Palomas farm. The farm is located in the Tarbaca province of Tarrazu at approximately 6,000 feet, with the perfect balance of sun and shade. Jorge’s brother Carlos owns the adjacent farm, El Alto, which we also offered this year. Initially, both farms were producing specialty coffee under one name, “El Alto Las Palomas”, but upon the passing of their father the farm was split in two. They now happily exchange the title of best cupping coffee year in and year out, creating a strong spirit of brotherly competition. Blue State Coffee has been buying coffee from Jorge for nearly a decade and we are proud to offer his wonderful coffee once again.
