DIRECT TRADE, Grown in San Adolfo in the Huila region by the Los Gigantes coffee growers association, 1400-1890 meters above sea level. Pink Bourbon variety; washed process. CUPPING NOTES: Sweet raspberry, lemon acidity with a clean finish. De-licious.
Pink Bourbon: Coffee Varietal cultivated from hybridization of Red and Yellow Bourbon. It's very rare, but the producers say it is quite resistant to coffee rust. Pink and Orange Bourbons are very difficult to produce with consistency. The recessive genes leading to the expression of these colors are easily thwarted by the presence of yellow and red genes in a given pollen grain. A carefully isolated and contained lot can do quite well and preserve the unique color and character of this variety, though this is quite hard to find.
We've worked with Jack and Maria (and the handful of coffee farms they own) for many years. They recently purchased the Alejandria Estate in the famed Huila region which grows some of the best coffee in Colombia. The Alejandria Estate is a fairly small farm (5 hectares) and only 20% of their trees are the Pink Bourbon variety. For coffees like this, they partner with their neighboring farms (and fellow members of the Los Gigantes Coffee Growers Association) and sell it as one uniform lot.
