Luz Divia

Luz Divia Fierro, Colombia

Our first (but not last!) time working with this farm, we're floored by its heavy fruit sweetness and aroma: dried blueberry, lychee, and holy basil. Damn!

About Luz Divia Fierro

We're excited to have this lot from Luz Divia, better known as Sandy, sourced through our partners at Azahar Coffee, who focus on Colombian coffees and sustainable buying practices. Sandy and her husband Elpido grow some 50,000 Pink Bourbon trees in Huila (that's a lot!) and are fully invested in the future of this joyously fruity, resilient variety.

GGET Coffee Geography

Pretty In Pink

Sandy and Elpido inherited their farm from Elpido’s father some years ago and began to cultivate the land, gravitating towards Pink Bourbon as they looked at the future of climate change and its increasingly dangerous effects on coffee plants, like Coffee Leaf Rust. Pink Bourbon, likely a cross between Yellow and Red Bourbon varieties along with the Colombia variety, has proven to be resistant thus far to rust—as well as possessing wonderful and intense fruity qualities when fully ripe.
