Alirio, together with his wife Anayibe, and neighbouring local farmers near Bruselas, Huila make up Los Guacharos. As a collective, Los Guacharos are working to move away from the use of synthetic chemical inputs on their farms and towards a more sustainable, biodynamic form of agriculture. Alirio has put a lot of effort and focus into specializing in adventurous varieties at his farm El Placer. These include Pink Bourbon, Bourbon Aji, Chirroso and Sidra. This particular lot of Pink Bourbon is one of the first from his recent plantings.
