Libardo - Yellow Bourbon

Villa Fatima, Pitalito, Colombia


This is the first of three lots from Libardo that we’ll be releasing in the coming couple of months. This lot is 100 percent Yellow Bourbon, a varietal synonymous with intense sweetness and complexity.

Libardo Piedrahita farms eight hectares of mountainside in Villa Fatima, in the municipality of Pitalito. His farm is much bigger than the average size, giving Libardo the opportunity to plant a host of different varieties from the common Colombia and Castillo to ‘exotic’ varieties like Pink and Yellow Bourbon.

Coffee runs deep in the Piedrahita blood. At 56, Libardo started out tending his father's farm in Bèlen not far from where he is now. Libardo’s six children all help out on the farm while juggling their own careers in town, his oldest holds a degree in engineering - specialising in coffee production.

Once his coffees have been harvested, processing is meticulous with Libardo’s view that “the drying process is the most crucial part of the post-harvesting process because it helps preserve the coffees freshness and can bring out more complex flavours”.
