Don Norbey is a coffee producer from Acevedo Huila. He, along with his wife and two children, own and run the farm La Esmeralda. This farm is 12 hectares in size with 5 hectares being assigned to coffee production. 


This micro-lot is 100% Pink Bourbon. This varietal is currently under research in order to determine its origin. It is said that it is a mutation that took place at 2100 m.a.s.l in San Adolfo, Huila.


Norbey first started out in coffee working as a picker at different farms across Huila and also providing lunch for the workers. In 2005, he was given the opportunity to buy a portion of what is now his farm, La Esmeralda. The income Norbey received from growing coffee on his section of the farm allowed him to continue expanding his coffee plantation to the size it is now.


In 2010, Norbey stepped into the world of Specialty Coffee production and started planting exotic varieties such as Gesha, Papayo and Pink bourbon among others. Since making the change, he has experienced greater premiums for his work and gained international recognition for his coffees.
