More about Me!

Medium-Light Roast, Roasted for all brewing methods!

Current Roast : 11/6/2024

This coffee was grown by Luz Helena Salazar at the farm La Leona. This coffee is harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated and hand-sorted to remove any defects. Cherries were then exposed to 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being pulped. The parchment was then gently washed and then dried in temperature controlled conditions until ideal moisture content was achieved. This micro-lot is 100% Pink Bourbon. This varietal was most recently researched by Cafe Imports with genetic testing revealing that Pink Bourbon was just a name. Pink Bourbon, as tested on two occasions (2017 by DNA Analytica and 2023 by RD2 Vision), was not a Bourbon at all, let alone a rare cross or mutation of one or more Bourbons. Nor was it a nouveau hybride. Pink Bourbon is an Ethiopian landrace variety.

Brewing Parameters

Everyone has their own way to brew a tasty cup of coffee and that's the most fun, to be able to explore the many different variables that affect the coffee's extraction!

Here's a simple guide to follow :

Too much astringency, acidity / sharp, pointed - extract more!

Too much bitterness, dry finish - extract less!

- Use filtered water when possible, mineral water would be your next best option when brewing at home. Mineral composition of water greatly affects the extraction of solubles in coffees, hence affecting the cup's profile.

- Try using a brewing temperature of around 90-93°C as we feel it give optimal extraction of flavours from our coffees. 

- Start brewing with a base ratio of 1g ground coffee to 16 - 17g brew water for filter brews (by hand) and 1g ground coffee to 2 - 2.5g brew water for espressos (by pressure) and you can adjust the ratio from there according to your taste preference!

- Coffee are best consumed within 2 month (normal usage) or 3 months (unopened) as exposure to oxygen increases the oxidation rate of the coffees.
