About Pink Bourbon
A varietal known for its elegance, balance and sweet floral notes Pink Bourbon is a rare and coveted find. A Hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon, this varietal stands out in every way. From its striking pink coloration of its ripe cherries to the sweet complex flavor profile of its beans. Pink Bourbon is challenging to cultivate. In addition to its need for meticulous plant maintenance, farmers must isolate their crops to encourage cross pollination and the ongoing production of pink fruits. Harvesting also requires extra diligence; coffee pickers must understand subtle color nuances that separate under ripe cherries from mature ones. Given all the variables that need to align, this lot seems almost miraculous.
