Hildebrando Angel is a young producer, who started his journey with coffee from production education: farming, fermentation processing and drying methods. For 12 years he lived on the farm where nothing was produced at the large scale. It was his father who convinced him to grow coffee.
Angel decided to invest in incredibly rare variety - Pink Bourbon. Along with his father they develop and improve the farming processes aiming for being renowned for best Pink Bourbon farm in the region. Each year their coffee achieves high rating and when it scored 86 points for the first time Hildebrando felt that his hard work finally was recognised. He still has a lot of plans for improving the farm, and of course he has limitless passion and desire to learn more about coffee.
Pink Bourbon is a natural hybrid of Yellow and Red Bourbon. The name comes from the colour of the ripe fruit. This variety is very rare and even in the ideal conditions it is difficult to grow. It also requires a lot more work along the entire process.
