About the coffee

This is a fine example of the rare pink bourbon variety, which is a hybrid of red and yellow bourbon, discovered in the 1990s by Don Gabriel Castaño, who made it famous in his region. During harvesting, cherries are hand-sorted by ripeness, before entering an extended fermentation in tanks for 96 hours, where their flavours develop. The cherries are then washed before being dried for around two weeks.

The farm | Finca La Granda

In 1990, the Colombian economy opened its doors to international markets. For Colombian producers, this proved to be an enormous challenge, as imported products were substantially cheaper than their local produce, undercutting their hard work. Coffee farmer Don Gabriel Castaño faced the very same problem; that is, of course, until he discovered pink bourbon, a rare coffee variety.

Fascinated by the vibrant colour of the seeds, he planted this unknown variety on his Finca La Granda in Huila, and quickly found them to be a lucrative crop, especially for their resistance to leaf rust. He decided to plant his entire farm with pink bourbon, and saw great success producing a high quality, high yield coffee and securing a stable income for him and his family.

Gabriel and his wife Carmen have six children – four daughters and two sons – five of whom followed in the footsteps of their parents, becoming coffee producers themselves. Although Gabriel is reaching the twilight of his life, and medical complications mean he can no longer drink coffee, he says he wouldn't want to swap his life with anyone. He planted 8000 trees over his career, and is famous in his region for introducing pink bourbon to his colleagues. A real Don of coffee in Huila!

Bloody Good Filter

Coffee is a fruit with many natural fruit acids. We roast our coffees to bring out these acids, but also to bring out the sweetness. When our roasters develop a flavour profile for a filter coffee, they make sure to use a slightly lower temperature. In our coffees, we bring out the natural flavour profile of each variety, but also of the terroir of Origin.
