Grind

    La Granada 96h is a funky filter coffee that plays all the hits of Bourbon coffees. In the cup, we taste chocolate, spices and a fruity note of passionfruit, all with a syrupy mouthfeel. 

    Choose your grind

    If you don't have a grinder at home, we'll happily grind your coffee to your specifications. Just select your brewing method above or order whole beans.

    About the coffee

    Gabriel Castaño was the first farmer to grow the Pink Bourbon coffee variety on his La Granada finca in Colombia. The colourful variety is relatively rare because the gene that controls colour in the ripe cherry is double recessive. This means that if there are red, orange or yellow bourbon plants nearby and they pollinate each other, the pink colour is lost, as are the bourbon characteristics.

    In the harvesting process, the coffee cherries are carefully hand-selected for ripeness. In an extended fermentation, the cherries are weighed and then fermented in tanks for 96 hours. The beans are then washed and dried for 15 days. The result is an exquisite array of aromas with impressive flavours of chocolate cake, baking spices and passionfruit.

    About the farm

    In 1990, Colombia opened its doors to the international economy. This was a hard blow for local producers all over the country, because foreign imports were usually cheaper. This situation was also very difficult for Don Gabriel Castaño - until he discovered the then not very well-known coffee variety Pink Bourbon. Fascinated by the colour of the seeds, he planted this variety on his finca La Granda, in the department of Huila, and discovered that the plant was very resistant to rust. From this discovery, he decided to replant completely: with success! His plantation and the quality of his coffee brought him and his family a secure economic income.

    Gabriel and his wife Carmen have six children - four daughters and two sons - five of whom have followed in their parents' footsteps and become coffee producers themselves. Although Gabriel is getting on in years and can no longer drink coffee for health reasons, he says he wouldn't trade his life with anyone. He has planted 8,000 trees in his lifetime and has become known in his community for introducing Variety Pink Bourbon to his colleagues.

    Bloody Good Coffee

    - SINCE 2002

    Bloody Good Filter

    Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.

    In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
