Finca El Rubi SL28

washed

25 years ago, the farm was sold to the current owner Heiner and his wife Johanna. It was initially growing the variety Caturra, and then moved to Castillo,
nowadays there is Papayo, Pink Bourbon and SL 28 planted.

El Rubí was a wedding present from the owner Heiner Lazo: he decided his love was so big that one ruby could not express it all, so he gave his future wife
thousands of rubies. All these coffee rubies helped the couple to move forward and until today they raised three beautiful daughters.

This coffee, based on the Papayo variety, is only rarely found outside the Huila Department. The trees are very strong and very productive, also very resistant
when it comes to roya sickness. This very special variety was named after the shape and smell of the cherries, which are looking like little papayas.
