Luis Anibal Calderón lives at Finca Villa Betulia with his wife and 3 sons. He began planting speciality coffee varieties in 2012 when he planted 5,000 Geisha trees on around 5% of his farm. Ten years later, it was apparent to Luis Anibal that returns from cultivating Geisha were worth the extra effort. He decided to dedicate his entire holding to farm more delicate and rare speciality varieties, such as Geisha and Pink Bourbon.
This is a unique Pink Bourbon lot. Pink Bourbon is a hybrid of Yellow and Red Bourbon varieties that was first discovered and grown in Colombia. Taste-wise, Pink Bourbon has all the advantages of its Bourbon parents. The highlights of the typical Pink Bourbon profile are the strong floral notes and pleasant acidity frequently found in East African coffees. As growers, Luis specialises in alternative processes that are new to Colombia. At their farm and processing centre La Pradera, the most exotic varieties are processed, achieving profiles that are distinctive for Colombian coffees
