José Martinez EL CASINO - LATE LATE HARVEST PINK BOURBON - WASHED Colombia

We are excited to finally be exploring something we have always wanted to explore: separating lots not just by quality, but also by harvest pass. This coffee is from the last harvest pass at El Casino. In this exceptional Pink Bourbon we find ripe red fruit, yellow tropical acidity, and a lovely complex finish.

Orders are roasted on Tuesday and shipped on Wednesday.

Pink Bourbon is a relatively new variety being grown primarily in and around Huila, Colombia. The variety has been identified genetically as an Ethiopian Landrace, but unfortunately, we cannot be any more specific as to its origins until there is a larger genetic database.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
