Luis Anibal Calderón lives at Finca Villa Betulia with his wife and 3 sons. He first purchased the land in 2005. He began planting specialty 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 farm to farm more delicate and rare specialty varieties, such as Geisha and Pink Bourbon.

Today, Villa Betulia is planted with a wide range of specialty varieties including Red, Pink and Yellow Geisha, Tabi, Java, Sidra, Striped Bourbon, Maragogype, Pacamara, Marageisha and several varieties of dwarf Geisha.

In addition to coffee, Luis Anibal also cultivates plantains, bananas, cassavas and limes.

Harvest & Post-Harvest
After selective handpicking, cherry is laid to dry on raised beds. Cherry is turned frequently to promote even drying. Once dry, coffee is stored for 20 to 30 days in a temperature-controlled warehouse in Armenia before being transported to the warehouse in Valle del Café, Armenia.

About Pink Bourbon
Pink Bourbon was previously thought to be a hybrid of Yellow and Red Bourbon varieties. The variety was first identified growing in and around Huila, Colombia. Recent research has found that Pink Bourbon is in fact not Bourbon at all. Pink Bourbon mostly likely comes from an Ethiopian landrace variety.

Pink Bourbon has a stunningly high cup potential that wows coffee professionals and consumers alike. Its impressively high cup quality makes even more sense now that we understand Pink Bourbon is not simply a hybrid of two Bourbon varieties but traces to Ethiopian landraces. Its siblings include the highly-prized Geisha, which has consistently produced incredibly high cup scores. Pink Bourbon will continue to be a highly distinguished and valued variety.

Some farmers also report that Pink Bourbon has more disease resistance than the Bourbons it grows alongside. Based on these new discoveries, this may be due to the genetic variety it has coming from Ethiopian landraces.
