ABOUT WILMER GALINDEZ Wilmer's heartfelt story is a joy to tell. Eight years ago, when Wilmer was only 20, his mom and sister abandoned the family farm due to debts incurred following the passing of Wilmer's father. Wilmer stayed behind, and within 3 years he had recuperated the farm and paid back almost all of the debts his family owed. His mother and sister then returned to the farm and requested that Wilmer return it to their possession. Despite all of the work he had put in, he accepted their request. Taking on personal debt, he purchased a small three hectare (~7.4 acres) lot a few hundred meters from his family's original farm. This lot was relatively untouched mountain jungle that he, over the next 4 years, cultivated and planted 3,000 trees of San Bernardo, 1,700 trees of Pink Bourbon, and 2,000 trees of Tabi. It is an honor to be the first roaster to bring his coffees to the international market. 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 rather distinct flavor profile, point towards it being some sort of Ethiopian Landrace variety. However, to our knowledge Pink Bourbon has not yet been 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 in the near future. ABOUT TABI Tabi is a newer hybrid to the scene, having been developed in 2002. It is a cross between Bourbon, Typica, and Timor Hybrid. Tabi was developed as a part of the research to develop a variety that is disease resistant while maintaining good cup quality. Over the last few years this has become our favorite hybrid variety because it provides producers with an excellent disease-resistant choice while also having a very high cup quality potential.
