New varieties are among some of the most exciting developments in coffee right now. For generations, coffee has suffered from a narrow and shallow gene pool. Big companies prioritized production over diversity, and todays coffees suffer as a result.
This month we sent out a variety we've had our eye on for a while. About three to four years ago we started hearing whispers about "Pink Bourbon" in Southern Huila, Colombia. A couple of farmers planted a variety that mutated here and was recognizable by the lighter color of cherries it produced. Often times it seems like mutations either result in good resistance and health or a better cup. Pink Bourbon seems to exhibit both great plan health and a phenomenal cup.
The primary characteristic is a papaya like flavor, and floral/tropical notes. This coffee is an excellent representation of this, and comes from three tiny first year harvests in San Agustin, Colombia.
