Potosí Pink Bourbon

Pink Bourbon is a great example of the recent movement of the Colombian coffee industry. Originally appearing as a natural mutation in Huila, it shows similar disease resistance and yield characteristics to hybrid varietals, while also exhibiting an exotic and floral flavour profile. As an industry of mainly small to medium farmers, with many export routes for all lot sizes, Colombia has a very agile coffee growing population, capable of producing many different flavour profiles and follow market demands quickly. Pink Bourbon has taken Colombia by storm, now growing in all the main producing regions. This Pink Bourbon is an excellent illustration of the reason why. Another washed process coffee, this lot was grown at Finca Potosí and processed at the state of the art wet mill shared with its neighbour Las Margaritas. The cherries are first fermented whole, for 24 hours, before being de-pulped and fermented for a further 36.

This double fermentation seems to enhance the floral and tropical fruit aromatic character of the Pink Bourbon, creating a rich sweetness while holding onto the fresh citrus acidity.

Produced using Café Granja’s generations of professionalism and expertise.

Varietal Series

This year, we are excited to present a varietal series from our partners at Café Granja La Esperanza. One of the most revered producers in Colombia, and on Barista competition stages the world over, we have been collaborating with Granja on super high-end lots since 2014. Over the past few years however, we have been visiting more often, and become more aware of the breadth of work this dedicated and passionate group of people. This series presents a fuller view of their work, from their elevation of ordinary varietals, all the way to incredibly rare varietals, hybridised by the Granja team on their farms. An extensive cupping, both in Colombia and at home in Copenhagen, has led us to this selection with the focus on varietal first, process second. Each lot has been selected with the aim of presenting the varietal characteristics in the most delicious and clear way, based on the discussions and experiences we have had on our trips to visit the Granja team. We are truly proud of our relationship with these trailblazers, and look forward to sharing their work with you over the coming weeks.

Washed Process

The washed process involves completely removing both the cherry and the mucilage from the outside of the parchment with the use of friction, fermentation and water. After being harvested, the coffee cherry is then sliced open by either a metal or a sharp plastic blade.

The two seeds (also known as beans) are pushed out of the cherry, which leaves the seed with mucilage as their outermost layer. It is essential in the washed process that all mucilage is removed from the seed which leaves only the flavour that developed in the cell structure of the seed prior to processing.
