Abelino Vera is a 3rd generation coffee farmer. His farm, Finca El Diviso has been passed down to him with his parents and brothers working alongside him. In 2014 Abelino focused on speciality coffee choosing varieties such as Pink Bourbon and Caturra to focus his efforts on.
Pink Bourbon showcases characteristics that are quite different from other traditional Colombian Varieties. Florals and Citrus with a ton of sweetness are characteristic of this variety. This may sound similar to Ethiopian varieties because it is. Genetic Testing showed that these "pink bourbon" coffees are actually "Ethiopian Landrace Varieties."
This year we purchased 3 lots from Abelino. This coffee is an amazing example of what Pink Bourbon can be. Floral, Juicy, and Sweet. You can't miss this one.
