Edgar Motta Colombia Pink Bourbon
|Roaster Location:||Denver, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||San Adolfo, Acevedo, Huila Department, Colombia|
|Est. Price:||$19.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||February 2017|
Delicate, sweet-toned, subtly complex. Rhododendron, date, graham cracker, pink peppercorn, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy, citrus-like acidity; lightly satiny mouthfeel. The gently drying finish consolidates around notes of date and graham cracker in the short, with suggestions of spicy floral tones (pink peppercorn) in the long.
Produced entirely from the rare Pink Bourbon variety of Arabica, a hybrid of the respected Red and Yellow Bourbon varieties that producers report has some resistance to leaf rust, a devastating disease of the coffee plant. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). This coffee tied for the top rating in a cupping of coffees from roasting companies five-years-old or younger for Coffee Review‘s February 2017 tasting report. Founded by Andy Sprenger in 2013, Sweet Bloom develops long-term relationships with coffee producers that emphasize transparency and consistency. Visit www.sweetbloomcoffee.com for more information.
A Colombia coffee with an exhilarating range of sensation: both delicate and juicy, floral and spice-toned.
