First and foremost, thank you all! From the absolute bottom of our hearts we cannot thank you enough for the outpouring of support and loyalty to our brand. We started out three years ago with a simple mission, to drink better coffee and you have all embraced. With your support it has helped us constantly push the limits and boundaries of what we are capable of accomplishing as a company.
This is year has been wild to say the least, sitting here today writing this I am completely grateful to be able to talk about something I truly love, coffee. In the past we've always done an Anniversary Roast and always aspired to make it something really unique and one of a kind, this year we gone even further to the ends of the coffee world to find you something worthy of this honor, Pink Bourbon.
Pink Bourbon (not like the American Spirit, it is pronounced Burr Bone) is a rare and truly coveted find, a gem in the coffee varietal world. It is a hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon that offers a sweet and complex flavor packed profile to it's beans. It requires a meticulous and diligent farmer that even under the most ideal and pristine growing conditions, still make it an incredibly challenging offering. The juicy pink cherries are hand selected at the exact moment of ripeness yielding an exceptionally complex and wonderful cup of coffee.
Our featured farmer is Jose Daniel Muñoz and his 5-hectare farm, Villa Camila is home to about 13,000 coffee trees. Daniel and his team of farmers hand select and depulp the cherries the day they are havested and ferment the coffee for about 30 hours prior to being dried to bring out the complex flavors locked within.
Rare is an understatement! Once again we've sourced a few of the only bags of this magnificent crop that exist in the world and bring it right to your doorstep. This roast is highlighted with sweet juicy notes of pomegranate and honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit. Smooth, balanced and sweetly tart it's perfection in a cup.
