This coffee from Finca El Rubi comes from the Acevedo region of Huila where Heiner Lazo has been farming coffee for many years. Heiner has owned El Rubi for 25 years alongside his wife, Johanna. The farm got its name after a ruby was gifted to the previous owner when she got married and Heiner and Johanna now see it as their precious jewel.
For many years, El Rubi have grown caturra, colombia and castillo but in recent years they have decided to start experimenting with more exotic varietals. On the farm they have a variety called papayo (named after the papaya fruit), SL28 and also 7,500 pink bourbon trees which they started to plant 3 and a half years ago. Heiner and Johanna are also experimenting with processing and are working with temperature controlled fermentation and anaerobic fermentation.
Cultivated from hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon, Pink Bourbon is said to have been first found in Pitalito, Huila. This variety can be hard to grow and cultivate due to the genetic volatility but it is shown to have good resistant to rust and produces exquisite cup qualities. Pink Bourbons have a substantial amount of glucose which is thought to help give the coffee its more delicate, soft and complex profile.
Heiner takes great care in the selection of this coffee ensuring it is collected at the optimum point of ripeness before then being pulped and dry fermented over night. After this the coffee is then sun dried for between 7-10 days depending on the weather, down to between 10-11% moisture.
