This gem of a coffee is bright and juicy. It makes me see pink and green with flashes of yellow reminds me of grapefruit, apple and brown sugar.
From Cafe Imports:
Patio Bonito is a hardworking, family-run farm in Caldono, Cauca. Owner Carlos Arturo Trujillo has been a coffee farmer for 40 years, and he says, "It has been a long road, but in the end, it is very satisfactory." He is assisted on his farm by a daughter, Paola, who has been especially integral in helping Carlos perfect the fermentation process for his coffee.
The farm is 5 hectares, with 4 hectares growing 22,000 coffee trees of a few different varieties, namely Castillo, Colombia, and Pink Bourbon. Carols Trujillo and his family are passionate in their pursuit of quality, and in their attention to detail in every aspect of the farm. According to the Trujillos, all operations at Patio Bonito are grounded in three core values: food security, soil conservation and management, and coffee cultivation. The farm's mission is "to provide alternatives and training to farmers and students on the management, conservation, and exploration of natural resources and the environment," and the family's philosophy is, “The best legacy we can leave to our children is: love, knowledge, and a planet in which to live."
Pink Bourbon has recently been identified as an Ethiopian Landrace.
