Pink Bourbon is a rare and coveted find. A hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon, this varietal stands out in every way—from the striking pink color of its ripe coffee cherries to the sweetly complex flavor of its beans. Even in ideal growing conditions, Pink Bourbon is challenging to cultivate. In addition to meticulous plant maintenance, farmers must isolate their crops to encourage successful cross-pollination and the ongoing production of pink fruit. Harvesting also requires extra diligence: coffee pickers look for subtle color nuances that separate underripe cherries from mature ones. Given all the variables that need to align, this lot seems almost miraculous. Elegant and balanced with sweet floral tones. A truly breathtaking cup profile.
