About: Pink Bourbon is believed to be a hybrid between Red and Yellow Bourbon and was discovered in San Adolfo, Huila. It generally has a higher glucose content than other varieties, which results in a sweeter brew and the silky mouthfeel it is prized for. Luckily for us, Jairo has planted 10 hectares of Pink Bourbon on Finca Villarazo, and with the guidance of his sons, Carlos and Felipe, he has become an expert at advanced processing techniques. This coffee has been processed using carbonic maceration, where whole cherries are fermented in sealed containers with no oxygen. This process selects for certain microbes to carry out the fermentation creating a loud and complex flavour profile.
