Notes: 25 years ago current owners Heiner and Johanna purchased this 6-hectare farm in San Adolfo, Huila where they now have 7300 trees of Pink Bourbon. The previous owner planted the coffee trees as a homage to his wife, who he thought deserved all the rubies in the world.
El Rubi cherries undergo two layers of fermentation before being sun-dried. This begins with 36 hours of Carbonic Maceration to activate a light de-pulping process and is followed by Anaerobic Maceration at a controlled temperature for a further 24 hours. This is achieved by sealing the lightly de-pulped cherries in a grain-pro bag and submerging it in water between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius. The remaining mucilage is then washed from the bean before it is sun-dried
