Colombia Pink Bourbon/Pink Lemonade Collaboration
|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Huila, Colombia|
|Est. Price:||$18.95/16 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2021|
Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, floral-driven. Honeysuckle, vanilla bean, cocoa nib, peach, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with gently bright, ripe acidity; very full, viscous mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of peach, vanilla bean and oak.
Notes: Produced by Jose Ortiz of Finca El Danubio from trees of the Tabi and Pink Bourbon varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed before drying). Badbeard's Microroastery is a Portland, Oregon-based small-batch roaster focused on quality and freshness. Badbeard's encourages its customers to "make great coffee at home."For each bag sold, Badbeard's donates over $5 to Pink Lemonade Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving those affected by breast cancer in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington metro area.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, delicate yet confident Colombia cup — classically sweet and cocoa-toned with juicy acidity.
