Juan Jimenez – Pink Bourbon Variety
Pink bourbon deliciousness!
pink lemonade, raspberry, sugarcane
...in this coffee.
There’s just something about a wash processed pink bourbon that makes us giddy here at Sweet Bloom. We love the inherent and complex diversity of fruit nuance found in washed pink bourbons, without any of the fermenty fruit notes that come from honeyed, natural or anaerobic processes. Add to that loads of sweetness, juicy acidity and fuller body and its really hard to find a more complete coffee.
Juan grows this pink bourbon gem on his farm El Porvenir, together with his wife Leidy. It is an honor to be able to share their coffee with you. Fresh off the grind the aromatics are intensely sweet, floral and enticing. In the cup, we are tasting notes of pink lemonade, juicy raspberry and a lingering sugarcane sweetness. Really tasty coffee that won’t be around long – grab a bag quick and raise a cup to Juan and Leidy who are clearly producing beautiful coffee.

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
