Gildardo Lopez is one of the more sought-after producers in Paicol, having won many regional competitions, including the inaugural Copa de Oro. In the cup we find a very expressive Pink Bourbon profile, with excellently articulated acidities of lemon, lime, ripe raspberry, and a hint of florality. ABOUT GILDARDO LOPEZ Gildardo grows and 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 variety known for the complexity of its acidity and fruit characteristics. The physical look of the seeds and plant, along with its distinct flavor profile, point towards it being an Ethiopian Landrace variety. However, to our knowledge Pink Bourbon has yet to be genetically tested, so we cannot say with certainty what exactly it is. Working with our partners at World Coffee Research, we hope to have this variety tested soon.
