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 add 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:
Diego Lopez started his coffee business ten years ago after he bought his farm Finca San Francisco. Diego had an interest in this farm because he wanted to experiment with his knowledge as an agronomist. Yes, Diego Lopez is an agronomist and a coffee grower! At San Francisco, Diego started with the Caturra variety with which he learned to control all kinds of plagues and disease. Diego learned more about coffee and managed to practice his knowledge as an agronomist. The result of this has been the start of honey and natural process fermentation which gives the cup a unique and flavorful fragrance and taste.
Cóndor, Diego’s local partner, gives him all the tools and guidelines to achieve this development in honey and natural processed coffees. Don Diego and his wife are developing their plantation with the idea of sustainable development linked to high technicity: tree nursery, diversity of shadow trees (lemon, banana, guamo, and guava) and development of drying and fermentation techniques. The secret to ç this Yellow Honey is the open-air sun-drying which has Diego mastered!
