This is the 2nd coffee we’re showcasing this year from producer Don Luis Anibal Calderon. His farm Villa Betulia is known for producing unique & high quality varietals, such as Geshas, Tabis & Pink Bourbons. Earliest this year, we featured a Lactic Washed Pink Bourbon by Don Luis, which showcased prominently lively citrus characters. We’re excited to share this elegant coffee with you!

The Pink Bourbon is a unique mutation of the Orange & Red Bourbon, which are also less commonly grown in Colombia. Don Luis started growing these unique varieties after receiving higher demands for his Gesha coffees. Whilst not every farm & microclimate is suited to growing these delicate varietals, the trees have flourished with the soil & environment at Villa Betulia.

This lot was dry fermented in Grainpro bags for 48 hours in a supposed anaerobic environment. The lack of oxygen slows down the fermentation process, allowing for complex flavour compounds to develop. The coffees were then pulped and dried on raised beds to a moisture of 10.5%.

This coffee is extremely elegant, with notes of ripe white peaches & white flowers, like osmanthus or even chrysanthemum. We believe the honey process elevated the tactile experience, reminding us of a smooth, jelly-like texture. We hope you will enjoy this coffee as much as we do.
