Juan Jimenez Pena
Mandarin / Stone Fruit / Brown Sugar
Juan Jimenez Pena runs his farm, El Porvenir, alongside his wife Leidy in Palestina, Huila's southernmost municipality. Sitting at 1650masl, the 16-hectare farm grows Caturra, Colombia and Pink Bourbon; this lot is made up of the latter, Pink Bourbon, the rare hybridisation of Yellow and Red Bourbon. El Porvenir is a highly productive farm, with Juan being quality focused with production; he and his wife manage a team of pickers who meticulously harvest each variety at peak ripeness. Pink Bourbon is difficult to identify at peak ripeness, making it difficult to harvest optimally.
