Offered by two neighbouring producers, this Pink Bourbon lot simply jumped off the cupping table! With close to 40 years of growing experience between them, José and Wilson’s collective expertise shines in this incredible offering.

WHAT IS PINK BOURBON? WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?

Pink Bourbon: we’re loving this varietal. While its exact origin is unknown, Pink Bourbon is speculated to have originally been a varietal mutation occurring at an elevation of 2100 MASL in San Adolfo, Huila.

Both José Lizardo and Wilson Alba have been growing Pink Bourbon for the last few years with some incredible results. This particular varietal seems to have settled beautifully into the microclimate surrounding their farms. Recent improvements on the farmers’ respective land have included planting more shade trees which has helped lower soil temperatures, stop erosion and improve the quality of coffees produced.

In this case, José and Wilson banded together to make a larger lot that began satisfying the ever-increasing demand for Pink Bourbon coffees. Tasting is believing! We can’t wait for you to try it.

Watch out for our other Pink Bourbon coffees into 2024, and beyond.

PRICING EXPLAINED

 *This is the FOB (Free On Board) price: the price paid to the exporter before shipping, and which does not include shipping costs, weight loss (around 17%), storage and other charges. Ultimately, the FOB price represents the $ figure that stays in the coffee's country of origin, benefiting its producer, community, and beyond. 

^This is the 'raw' price paid directly to the producer, and paid in the local currency for parchment coffee. The coffee is then milled and sorted before being placed in bags, ready for shipping.
