Colombia San Adolfo Pink Bourbon
A few producers located in Huila have on their farms a coffee tree with a different characteristic: Cherry ripen to be pink! The story of this coffee is quiet interesting. It all started with Rodrigo Sanchez, a producer from the municipality of Palestina. Rodrigo organizes the producers from Palestina and other municipalities to bring their coffee to market.
One day he got the chance to cup the Pink Bourbon, and he was amazed with the cupping results. At that time, he was one of the only people who knew about the odd tree, and locally began to conduct research to find out where this coffee was coming from, and which producers had it. We were told about a producer who has the coffee as well; his name is Evelio Artunduga. Don Evelio has a farm located in San Adolfo region at 1860 meters. In his farm he has Caturra, Colombia, and Pink Bourbon. He took us to see the Pink Bourbon, and we were amazed to see the color of the cherry. He explained that the variety has more resistance to rust, has a good amount of yield, and doesn’t require too much fertilizer. Our next question was how he got the seeds. To our surprise, he told us he got the seeds from Edgar Motta, another producer.
