ORIGIN & SOURCING:
This coffee is sourced from our friends at Oro Molido. We have been working with Oro Molido since 2015. They are multigenerational coffee producers with farms in several regions in Colombia. The Vista de Nieve farm is in Northern Colombia in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The farm is close enough to the Caribbean Sea that coastal micro climates cause the coffee to mature and ripen more slowly, resulting in beans that are more dense. Denser beans also contain higher levels of sugar, resulting in more complex and sweeter cup profiles. Pink Bourbon is a unique and sought after variety. Once thought to be a hybridization of Red and Yellow Bourbon, however recent genetic testing show that it is more closely related to Ethiopia landrace varieties of wild coffee. Here is an interesting article diving deep into the genetic history of Pink Bourbon if you feel like jumping into the deep end of the pool
Why We Love This Coffee: The dense coffee that come from Vista de Nieve along with the delicious Pink Bourbon variety make this coffee sweet and juicy great flavor complexity, it is often a favorite on the cupping table. Not only is the coffee awesome, the folks that grow the coffee are awesome too! Their Rain forest Alliance certification highlights their commitment to protect nature and improve the lives of farmers and forest communities. Beyond that, they created non profit foundation they created to improve development opportunities for children and young people that live in rural coffee-growing communities.
