Colombia – Los Naranjos – Pink Bourbon


Know where your coffee comes from

Rodrigo Benavides lives at the Los Naranjo’s farm with his wife. He is already in coffee for 12 years, but just shortly entered the specialty coffee world. The farm received its name from the beautiful orange trees that grow on the farm. The trees do not only produce sweet fruits but they also provide the appropriate shadow and nutrition to the soil and therefore all the coffee trees that grow underneath. Three years ago, they learned about the distinguishing cup profile of the pink bourbon and decided to grow this exotic variety, while keeping other varietals as well. Rodrigo believes that his effort and continuous investment will translate into an excellent quality coffee and enhance the income of the family. He knows that providing excellent coffee demands a lot of energy and being careful in every detail.

How it’s roasted

We roasted this honey processed coffee for filter, it tastes floral and has hints of tropical fruits. Thank to its medium acidity it’s a very easy drinking coffee, but don’t underestimate the explosion of flavours that will happen in your mouth!

This bag contains 350 grams of love.

This is our very first Pink Bourbon, so here is a bit more info on the variety:

The Pink bourbon is such a delicate variety of Arabica, that it requires a lot of extra care in every sense of coffee production. It’s a hybrid variety from the Red and Yellow Bourbon. Pink and Orange Bourbons are very difficult to produce with consistency. The recessive genes leading to the expression of these colours are easily thwarted by the presence of yellow and red genes in a given pollen grain. A carefully isolated and contained lot can do quite well and preserve the unique color and character of this variety.
