A very special coffee produced by Andres Guaca at Finca Guacanas.
When we tasted a sample of this we were absolutely blown away by the crazy, boozy flavours it showed. We couldn't resist getting some in. We only have a very small quantity of this, so it won't hang around for long.
Carbonic maceration is a process used in wine making for softening acidty and drawing out deeper fruit notes. Andres Guaca picked the coffee cherries following a strict ripeness criteria and hand sorted them, before they were placed inside tanks to ferment for 64 hours with the addition of CO2.
The cherries were then removed and left to dry on raised beds below 35 degrees celsius until the ideal moisture content is achieved.
This microlot is 100% Pink Bourbon. A rare and new variety with really exciting flavour profiles. Pink Bourbon is currently under research in order to determine its origin. It is said that a natural mutation took place at 2100 m.a.s.l. nearby by Andres' farm in Huila.
