This lot comes from Luis Edgar Camacho’s farm, La Palma, in Palestina, South Huila. Luis has 8,000 trees of Pink Bourbon, of which 6,000 were planted in June 2019. La Palma is 9 hectares total in size and currently 5 hectares in coffee production. Luis decided to have Pink Bourbon as he had heard it had good production and could achieve good qualities. Luis was experimenting with different processes and tried the honey, which he liked, and the coffee cupped well.
This varietal stands out in every way – from the striking pink color of its ripe coffee cherries to its sweetly complex flavor.
The process starts with a good picking of the ripest cherries. Luis then leaves the cherries for an in-cherry fermentation of approximately 24 hours, after which he floats the cherries to take out the less dense and any foreign material. Afterward, Luis leaves the cherries in cans to ferment without water for 48 hours. The coffee is then pulped, and the beans are placed in closed containers with water and a degassing valve for four days. After, the beans are placed on the drying beds, where it takes 20 to 25 days to be ready, raking every 3 hours to achieve an even drying.
The final cup packs notes of bergamot, black currant, and jasmine, rounded out with the acidity of a peach and a smooth mouthfeel.
This coffee will definitely be best enjoyed on a manual brew method and it’s a good thing we got you covered there. In our cafes, you’ll find us using a V60 brewing method. This relatively simple brewing method takes less than five minutes to brew and you’re left with a delicious cup of coffee to jumpstart your day. Otherwise, if life has you on the go, you have to try the Aeropress GO. This excellent method ensures that you are left with delicious coffee anywhere you are. Plus, if you ever need help brewing, you can check out our brewing guides.
