From the sound of it, the Gutierrez family at Finca Monteverde really, really like coffee. Gildardo and his wife Miralba inherited the farm nearly 40 years ago. Today, they run Finca Monteverde with their three grown children who are now the fifth generation of Gutierrez family coffee producers: Johan, who assists with production and administration; Newerley, the commercial director and Q grader; and Katerinne, also Q certified and runs the marketing and sales for the farm. The Gutierrez children began encouraging their parents to plant more exotic varieties back in 2013 and the operation has grown significantly, building on the knowledge their family has gained from generations on the farm with modern processes and varieties. 

The process for their Green Natural Gesha is a good illustration of the work the Gutierrez family has done over the last 9 years. The coffee is harvested with meticulous attention to ripeness by the Gutierrezes with the help of a nearby indiginous community, the Nasa Wesx tribe. The coffee is then fermented for 100 hours anaerobically in cherry. Once the coffee is washed, it is spread out to dry on African raised beds for 25 days before finishing in a mechanical drying silo for an additional 5 days.

The resulting coffee is richly sweet with exactly the right amount of acidity.
