Helemile Muñoz Salamanca runs Finca Guadual and is a member of Asociacion Los Naranjos, a group of producers surrounding San Agustin, Huila. This 2-hectare farm is home to around 3000 coffee trees as well as bananas, cassava, and arracha.

The coffee is picked as ripe as possible and depulped the same day. It is then put in a tank for 40 hours to ferment before being washed and left to drain for 12 hours. Finally it is taken to the drying room where it dries for around 20 days until the desired moisture content is reached.

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. It mostl 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.
