Arley Calderon lives at Finca Villa Betulia with her parents and farms a plot of land. His father, Luis Aníbal Calderón, bought the farm in 2005.
Looking for a way to remain profitable, they started planting specialty coffee varieties in 2012, when they planted 5,000 Geisha trees on around 5% of their farm.

Pink Bourbon is a hybrid of the Yellow and Red Bourbon varieties that was first discovered and cultivated in Colombia. Taste-wise, Pink Bourbon has all the advantages of its Bourbon parents. The highlights of the typical Pink Bourbon profile are the strong floral notes and pleasant acidity frequently found in East African coffees.

There is more than color and altitude on your side. Chemical breakdowns have found Pink Bourbon to have a higher glucose content than many other varieties. This extra glucose, a type of sugar, means not only a sweeter cup, but also a silkier body and a more delicious mouthfeel. Some growers also report that Pink Bourbon has more disease resistance than its Red and Yellow parents.

In addition to coffee, Luis Aníbal and Arley also grow plantains, bananas, yuccas and lemons.

Harvest and Postharvest
After selective manual harvesting, the ripe cherry is placed in tanks and fermented anaerobically for 4 days. The cherry is then pulped using a classic drum pulper and left to dry in canopies, raised beds on the roof of the house. The sweet, sticky layer of mucilage and brown dries for 15 to 20 days. Once dry, the 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.
