This is the first Pink Bourbon on offer at STCBD and we are excited to share it with you!!
This coffee is complex. It has all the elements we look for in a great cup of coffee. Deep base notes of rich chocolate are complimented with cherry flavours. There is also a lovely tart raspberry taste and subtle florals.

Pink Bourbon is somewhat rare because it is difficult to grow. The recessive genes that produce this colour are easily dominated by the red and yellow genes and plants can even revert back to those dominant colours from year to year.

From the Importer:

 Diever Galindez owns the farm Las Juntas, where he grows Pink Bourbon. He's a member of Asociación Los Naranjos.

Asociación Los Naranjos was founded by a tight-knit group of farmers in the area surrounding the town of San Agustín, Huila. Despite the small size of the farms—2.5 hectares or less, on average—and the fact that most producers grow fewer than 12,000 trees, the coffees coming from Los Naranjos have consistently been some of the best and brightest on the cupping table, year after year. The farmers also have a very close kinship with one another and share information easily among their fellow growers: The overall philosophy among Los Naranjos is that anything that improves the lot for one producer can improve the lot for all—which also means that individual discipline and attention to detail on the small farms can have a very strong impact on the group.

These days, Los Naranjos's producers are relying more and more on a combination of modern technology such as pH and Brix meters, along with traditional and sustainable methods of farming that have been passed down through the generations of their families.
