Rodolfo Garcia Monterroso
FINCA LA PILA STORY
La Pila Farm, led by Rodolfo Garcia and his wife, Reina Isabel, thrives in the arid region of Santa Rosa, Guatemala. Named after its vital water source, this farm turns challenges into opportunities.
In a water-scarce area, Rodolfo processes his coffee exclusively as natural to converse water, utilizing optimal drying conditions to produce high-quality coffee. Thus, for processing the coffee, he carefully ferments the coffee cherries in nylon bags for 72 hours, and the cherries undergo a meticulous drying period of 25 to 30 days. Rodolfo and his family closely monitor the coffee’s progress with unwavering dedication.
Driven by curiosity and a passion for innovation, Rodolfo cultivates diverse coffee varieties, including Pache, Catuai, Geisha, Bourbon, Maragogype, and Marsellesa. Coffee is not just Rodolfo’s livelihood but his motivation for success alongside his family. With 32 years of experience, including 6 years dedicated to producing high-quality coffees, Rodolfo is committed to continuous improvement in quality and productivity. In addition, he seeks to establish business partnerships with those who appreciate the quality of his coffee.
Lastly, Rodolfo extends his deepest gratitude to the roasters who have purchased his coffee. He wishes that as volumes and quality increase, these relationships centered on quality and sustainability will turn into long-term friendships!
