We taste

A creamy tropical cup that reminds us of vanilla, pineapple, and pomegranate juice.

The bean

PRODUCER: Gabriel Castaño Buendía

REGION: Acevedo, Huila

COUNTRY: Colombia

ALTITUDE: 1700 masl

VARIETY: Pink Bourbon

PROCESS: Washed Anaerobic

Particularities

Unlike most coffee cherries that ripen to a deep red, Borbón rosado cherries turn pink. The variety expresses itself as a recessive gene, which makes it rare and coveted.

STORY

Gabriel Castaño Buendia made a name for himself for popularizing the pink bourbon mutation in the southern Huila region of Colombia. It was after discovering the mysterious variety on another farm where he was a picker that he decided to plant it on his entire 2-hectare plot. In addition to the distinctive color of the cherries, he particularly likes it for its resistance to the coffee leaf rust disease. Gabriel and his wife Carmen have 6 children to whom they passed on their passion for coffee growing and who are now producers themselves. For this lot, he chose to pulp the cherries and ferment the parchment in sealed bags for 90 hours. The coffee is then washed and dried on raised beds for 20 days.
