It's been a while since we've offered a pink bourbon varietal from Colombia, so we were pretty stoked for the opportunity earlier this year to see a sample and purchase this lot from Luz Calderon and her farm, Finca el Meson, high in the Acevedo municipality of Huila!  As with our other washed pink bourbon offerings in the past, Luz's selection sets itself apart from the more traditional varietals of Colombia, with more intense floral aromatics, and a more fruit forward cup profile (fruit without the ferment notes associated with naturally processed coffees).  This particular lot is floral in the aromatics for sure, and boasts darker fruit notes like blackberry and cherry, with a chocolate note in the cup reminiscent of hot cocoa. Really tasty!  No doubt, we hope to work with Luz and her coffee for many years to come!
