      This pink bourbon microlot is produced by Edilberto Vergara. At the peak of the harvest, Don Edilberto hired 18 pickers from neighboring municipalities but also pickers from the producing regions of Narino and Cauca. The pickers are paid by the kilo and when they harvest cherries for these microlots they receive a premium. Aldubral and his sons Carlos and Jhoan have carried out numerous experiments on the different processes which reveal the potential of their coffees. Edilberto Vergara and his wife Nubia are from the department of Cundinamarca. They began growing coffee in the south of the Huila region about 30 years ago, having both come from coffee producing families. Today, Edilberto and Nubia have 5 children and cultivate 16 hectares of coffee at their Las Flores farm.

      Salum is the only Burundian producer to own his own farm and washing stations in a country where 95% of the coffee industry is divided between 2 major players. His farm is located in Mbirizi. It is one of the largest in the country with some 7,000 trees. His 4 washing stations are Buzira, Shembati, Sehe and Butaganzwa. They are all located at altitudes of between 1,700 and 2,100 meters and Salum has a working relationship with over 8,700 farmers. In order to encourage his producers to harvest only very ripe cherries, Salum pays a much higher price for one kilo of cherries than the actual market price, in a country where the standard of living is among the lowest in the world. He has also set up his own transport company to control how his coffees are transported from the washing station to the port.
