Gabriel Motta - Pink Bourbon
ROAST | LIGHT
ORIGIN | ACEVEDO, HUILA, COLOMBIA
NOTES | TANGERINE, ORANGE WINE, BLACK TEA
If Gabriel's name sounds familiar, that's because we offered one of his stunning Pink Bourbon lots last year! Apparently, our love affair with Pink Bourbon is continuing in 2022, and we are so excited to have another lot to share with you from Gabriel's farm La Esmeralda in Acevedo, Colombia.
Acevedo is located in Huila, where the majority of the Pink Bourbon variety is propagated in Colombia. It seems to love these dramatic growing conditions, and lots coming out of this region are some of the cleanest, crispest ones we've had the pleasure of tasting. This lot in particular is a washed coffee processed using anaerobic fermentation, which has served to further emphasize those lovely, classic Pink Bourbon characteristics.
At the cupping table, we experienced a coffee that is delightfully citrusy, like ripe tangerines, with a crisp acidity, reminiscent of a great bottle of orange wine. It has a very clean sweetness that reminds of a lightly sweetened black tea infused with lemon. The whole experience in the cup is crisp, light, and refreshing - all the things a great summer sipper should be.
