Luis Anibal is a collector; a curator of exotic varieties. While visiting last May we were blown away by the number of unique heirlooms, mutations, and hybrid varieties he has at his farm. One of these is this incredible pink bourbon.

Luis hand sorts the cherries before they spend 6 days in anaerobic tanks, he then floats and hand sorts the cherries again before drying. Villa Betullia isn’t especially high at 1600m but the micro-climate keeps his farm quite cool, which helps slow fruit maturation and extended fermentations.

Luis Anibal Calderon, has made it his life's passion to cultivate unique varieties of coffee. Luis comes from a line of coffee farmers, having started his venture on his father's farm at the age of 9. His thirst for unique coffee varieties has made him known for his obsession with the limits of the plant. He views his collection as an arboretum of sorts, always striving to find new cultivars and has become famous for his success in growing new and interesting coffee; our partnership with him can lead us to a new world of unique coffees.
