Description

Working with our amazing partners at Café 1959, who are sourcing incredible coffees from Colombia, we are excited to introduce our Finca El Mirador Pink Bourbon!

Pink Bourbon is an extraordinary and rare variety first found in Colombia. Grown by Elkin Guzman at Finca El Mirador in the mountains of the Huila region, this coffee is harvested following a strict ripeness criterion which is exceptionally hard with the light pink hue of this variety when it is fully ripe. Elkin Guzman is a master innovator always trying to push the boundaries of his coffees. With this coffee, he introduced his hot then cold fermentation method, which is a fitting showcase of his abilities. Pushing the coffee through two different extremes (in at 95-100f for 12 hours then thrown into a freezer to halt further fermentation), he has created a coffee that has both intense fruit characteristics from the high microbial activity in the high temperatures yet kept the coffee exceptionally clean from quickly slowing the activity through freezing. In doing this, he amplified everything we love about the pink bourbon cultivar without sacrifice.

This variety is currently under research in order to determine its origin. It is said that it is a mutation which took place at 2100 M in San Adolfo, Huila. This variety has been sought after since its discovery for its distinct flavor profile that is reminiscent of the famous Gesha variety.  It shares the clean bright acidities and fragrant florals, as well as the deep sweetness and structure.

This coffee tenders a beautiful bouquet of aromatics including red currant, raspberry, grape, pomegranate, and sugary sweet, followed by intense flavors of red currant, pink lady apple, blackberry, red sangria, honey, and a dense sugary sweetness.
