SINGLE ORIGIN LA GRANADA ANAEROBIC PINK BOURBON
Peach + Raisin
CULTIVAR: Pink Bourbon
PROCESSING: Washed with anaerobic ferment
This exceptional coffee comes from the famed Huila region of Colombia, produced by Gabriel Castaño Buendia. He’s known as the ‘father of Pink Bourbon’, having discovered the then-unknown seeds on his brother-in-law’s farm over ten years ago. He now grows Pink Bourbon on his two-hectare farm, La Granada, in the southern municipality of Acevedo. At 61 years old with 25 years of farming experience behind him, he’s now leaving most the hard work to his son, who completes all picking and processing.
The processing method was invented by Gabriel himself. Presenting his finished coffee to an exporter, they told him “something was missing”. Determined to remedy this, he studied at the Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA). Established in Brazil over two decades ago, CENA has focused on using stable isotopes to label and track nutrients in plant growth. Refining his process with a new exporter, Gabriel has perfected his fermentation process, producing a delicious coffee bursting with peach and raisin sweetness.
