Description

This is a fully washed lot of Pink Bourbon variety produced by Carlos Guamanga on his farm El Recuerdo in Pitalito, Colombia. In the cup, we found an explosively floral and fruity profile with a supremely syrupy and long-lasting structure - a fantastic representation of Pitalito coffee.

SOURCING STORY

Located in Pitalito, Carlos Maro Guamanga (with his wife Patricia) is working at El Recuerdo to grow fantastic tasting Caturra, Pink Bourbon and Tabi varietals. We like working with Carlos because he is very involved in roasting and cupping his own coffees, something that’s quite rare for the majority of smallholder producers. Carlos is always willing to experiment with different processing methods, varieties and fermentation times. He is also ecologically minded with his farming practices, using natural spring water found on El Recuerdo in his coffee processing. This lot of Pink Bourbon variety was fermented for 36 hours before depulping of the cherries, then fermented in tanks for 42 hours and dried on raised beds for 20 days.

Great Colombian Pink Bourbon!

This Colombian beans variety makes a great tasting coffee, smooth, with hints of panela and blackberries - one of the best I have tasted.
