This lovely washed Pink Bourbon was grown by Marleny Imbachi, an outstanding female producer in Colombia’s Huila region. We found a complex, clean cup with notes of yellow stone fruit, white florals, baking spices, a juicy red apple acidity, and a lingering sweetness.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.
