With this micro-lot, five small-scale coffee producers – Polo Calderon, Rubio Bolanos, Nelson Fabio Cordoba, Luis Octavio Titimbo, and Jose Gil Perafan – provide another great example of the famous adage, that the ‘whole is greater than the sum of the parts’.

It helps when the ‘parts’ are pink borbon variety lots, hailing from members of our favourite producer group, Los Guácharos (whose members are transitioning away from synthetic chemical inputs in their farming in favour of taking on a more wholistic, regenerative, soil-up approach).

Once thought to be a naturally occurring cross- pollination between red and yellow borbon varieties, DNA testing has recently demonstrated that the “pink
borbon” variety is in fact another Ethiopian Landrace.

These lots are minimally fermented in cherry, then
after pulping, without water.


We paid between $2,975,000 and $3,025,000 pesos per carga in January 2024 for the micro-lots that make up this lot, via our Colombian buying and export arm Shared Source.
