Finca Villa Betulia

Luis Anibal Calderon is somewhat of a local celebrity among Colombian coffee farmers. And for good reason. His dedication to preserving his father’s legacy and producing high quality coffee in Huila at Finca Villa Betulia is an inspiring story. This tradition is now passing down to Luis’ son, Yeison, who is taking up the mantle of managing the estate alongside his father. On this idyllic farm that sits high up in the mountains at 1550masl, they nurture over 20 rare and exceptional coffee varieties.


What is Pink Bourbon coffee?

Although the pink bourbon, or bourbon rosado, coffee variety was initially thought to be a hybrid of red and yellow bourbon strains, further research has shown that pink bourbon may be an unrelated Ethiopian landrace variety. With a sibling like the renowned geisha varietal, it’s no surprise that pink bourbon also boasts an incredible cup profile potential, plus plant disease resistant characteristics to boot.


Although further research is required to scientifically verify pink bourbon’s heritage, you can enjoy the tasty flavor profile that this lot offers. Look for notes of chocolate, graham cracker, green apple, red currant, and warm brown spices.


Washed Process Green Coffee

In the “washed” or “wet” process coffee cherries are floated and sorted to ensure consistent ripeness and to remove any defective cherries. The seeds (coffee beans) are then removed from their skins using depulping machines and typically moved to fermentation tanks to remove the mucilage—the remaining fruit remnants. Afterward, the coffee is washed and dried until it reaches the optimal moisture level.


Washed processing has become widely popular. The cup profile of washed coffees tends to reflect the terroir of the coffee. The processing method allows the growing conditions, the region, and the true character of the coffee to shine through.


Colombian Coffee

Over half a million families dedicate their livelihoods to producing unroasted Colombia green coffee on small farms that dot the country’s volcanic mountain ranges. As the world’s third-largest producing country, the volume, quality, and variety that comes out of Colombia year-round is staggering. Coffee from Colombia is never dull, and with 16 coffee-producing regions along three mountain ranges and two harvests each year, Colombia always has fresh coffee on hand.
