We’ve been loving the washed Pink Bourbon coffees from Colombia lately and this selection from Flower Child is a silky treat. Second generation producer Angel Ortega recently began separating his coffees into microlots and selling them under his own name, and his dedication is evident in the vibrant, clean cup. We found a carnation fragrance evolving into honey, and tasted tangerine, sugar cane, and strawberry jelly, with a juicy acidity and a silky body.

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. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
