Every year we look forward tasting the Pink Bourbon* Variety coffees from Colombia. This variety which was discovered at a farm in Huila several years ago and found to have exceptional cup quality has now been planted at several farms in the area and consistently produces some of the most striking coffees we have tasted from Colombia. This year our Pink Bourbon comes from two producers belonging to the San Agustin Cooperative: Angel Ortega and Irma Blancos. Quantities are limited. Enjoy it while it lasts.
*While called pink bourbon this variety is not related to the bourbon family of varieties found in other countries, Which is why we are specifying this variety as 'Colombian Pink Bourbon'. Coffee farmers have a tendency to call any trees they find with pink/orange fruit 'Pink Bourbon' as this is the only cultivated variety well known that has this color. However any time red and yellow fruited varieties are in the same field together it is possible for them to cross and some of the offspring will be of intermediate color. Which is most likely the source of this variety. Genetic testing of the plants does not show it to be closely related to bourbon.
