El Encanto Pink Bourbon, Colombia (1kg)
This is one of 3 coffees which Simon chose on his trip to Colombia in December '19. We've been buying Juan's coffees for some time and El Encanto's pink bourbon is one of our favourites to date. It's a washed coffee and was harvested during Simon's trip.
Juan has been very dedicated to finding out how different varieties perform in different environments and has himself eaten the costs of these experiments since he took over his parents' farms in 2012. He's building quite a knowledge base in the area for specialty coffee and his desire to push boundaries is now bringing success and a reputation.
El Encanto is a beautiful farm at 1400m equipped with a mechanical dryer, boasting magnificent views, and is littered with beautiful plants and flowers outside of the many varieties of coffee trees that are now growing there.
