Pink Bourbon is cultivated from hybridization of Red and Yellow Bourbon. It's very rare, but the producers say it is quite resistant to rust. Pink and Orange Bourbons are very difficult to produce with consistency. The recessive genes leading to the expression of these colors are easily thwarted by the presence of yellow and red genes in a given pollen grain. A carefully isolated and contained lot can do quite well and preserve the unique color and character of this variety, though this is quite hard to find. In 2008, this variety began to be planted in Colombia, due to the low international prices. In recent years harvests have increased, especially in the Huila province where it was first cultivated in Colombia. This coffee produced by Melva Ligia Guzman, this lot was carefully hand picked for ripest cherries then dried anaerobically fermented for 48 hours then coffee was pulped and placed in grainpro bags for 18 hours then sundried on raised bed until 10.5% moisture content was reached.
