I am so excited to add a new coffee varietal to our coffee bean family. Pink Bourbon is the hybridization of yellow and red Bourbon and is unique to Colombia. Like many Colombian beans, this coffee is rich, smooth, and carries a bright acidity. What makes this coffee special is the complex fruitiness that pops out at you when you take your first sip. The flavors of dark chocolate adds a richness to the coffee that complements the fruity pebble-like flavors perfectly. This is the perfect coffee to add to your shelf and I recommend buying some soon as it is extremely rare and I’m not sure how much more I’ll be able to get.
Coffee Production / Farm:
Sebastian was born in Armenia, Quindio who after living in Bogota for 8 years came back to his home town to manage his father’s farm. As a young and motivated coffee farmer, Sebastian convinced his father to plant rare varietals to help offset the low C market prices. Although a huge risk to replace high producing varieties such as Castillo for low producing varietals, like Gesha, Sebastian was determined to produce an outstanding cup. We think he nailed it with this Washed Pink Bourbon.
