Description

This is a small separation of Pink Bourbon from Carlos Guamanga's farm, El Recuerdo. Expect a wonderfully elegant, complex cup profile absolutely bursting with a wide spectrum of fruit and floral notes. Carlos’ production of this variety is always a high point for us in all of our Colombian offerings and often features in our Small Lot Series!

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. We love and appreciate all of El Recuerdo's coffees, but the Pink Bourbons are truly spectacular. Picked at peak ripeness, the cherries are pre-fermented for 24 hours, before being pulped and fermented. In the cup this coffee explodes with floral and raspberry notes.
