ABOUT GILDARDO LOPEZ

Gildardo produces coffee with his wife, Yolanda, and their four children at the western edge of Huila, near the border with Cauca. Gildardo's coffee regularly dominates regional competitions, and this year is no different––taking first place in the Central Region of the Copa de Oro. This is our third year working with this coffee, and it continues to impress!

ABOUT PINK BOURBON

Pink Bourbon is a relatively new variety being grown primarily in and around Huila, Colombia. The variety has been identified genetically as an Ethiopian Landrace, but unfortunately, we cannot be any more specific as to its origins until there is a larger genetic database.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
