While we always work hard to select amazing coffees to buy and roast, we wanted to do something kind of fun. So we are launching a new coffee we're calling Evolution. The plan with this is to offer some exciting coffees from different locations. While we have our solid standbys from certain countries for a reason, we're going to switch it up with EVOLUTION.
Here's how it'll work. We're starting with a Colombia. We bought one bag. When we sell it all, it's gone. We'll then switch over to another country, region, farm, etc.
To some, Evolution means… the next thing. The next task, next exercise, next role, next mission. Evolution is meant to keep bringing you something cool. Once this amazing Pink Bourbon coffee is gone, we’ll send out the incredible, strong, speedy, bulletproof, patriotic, American Bald Eagle to locate and bring us another fantastic coffee. Get some of this amazing juicy coffee from Finca Juan Martin while it's here!
From our importer, Cafe Imports: Finca Juan Martin is an innovative and experimental farm owned and operated by Banexport. The goal and focus of this project are to cultivate, harvest, and process different varieties in order to develop appropriate practices for each step toward optimum coffee quality. Beyond this, Juan Martin serves as a resource and example for coffee producers that sell and export their coffees through Banexport. Located in the highest area of Sotara, just 30 mins from Cauca's capital of Popayan, Juan Martin is dedicated to developing environmentally-conscious practices as well as providing jobs to community members with educational opportunities.
Various maintenance tasks are carried out at Juan Martín Farm: soil conservation is done because of the steep slope of the farm; undergrowth is allowed to grow to avoid erosion; evaluations are made on coffee crops to identify pests or diseases and eliminate them; the surface of the tree is cleaned every 75 days and coffee the space between rows is cleared with a scythe every 2 months.
This coffee is a Variety Select. Variety Select lots comprise coffees of a single noteworthy variety, sourced either from an individual farm or from several farms and blended together. These lots are designed to highlight the flavor potential that is inherent in particular coffee varieties, and are the result of great care and attention to detail on the producer's part. These coffees are microlot-level quality and come with a high degree of traceability.
Pink Bourbon: Cultivated from hybridization of Red and Yellow Bourbon. It's very rare, but the producers say it is quite resistant to rust. Pink and Orange Bourbons are very difficult to produce with consistency. The recessive genes leading to the expression of these colors are easily thwarted by the presence of yellow and red genes in a given pollen grain. A carefully isolated and contained lot can do quite well and preserve the unique color and character of this variety, though this is quite hard to find.
Tasting notes: Much boozy acidity and significant sugary sweetness with lots of toffee, dried cranberry, and blueberry flavors.
My husband and I typically like dark roasts, but we like to change our coffee routine every once in a while and explore new roasts. We are so glad we tried this one! The Columbia/Evolution roast has a deep, rich unsweetened cocoa flavor balanced with a lush, boozy-cherry-fruit layer. Imagine a dark-chocolate-cherry cordial or Black Forest Cake turned into a coffee bean. A real treat for both of us. Thank you, BB, for making this available - another excellent roast.
