Each year when sourcing Limited Release coffees, we seek to find offerings that are unique and on the cutting edge of new processing techniques. We have been privileged over the years to connect with importers that are striving to highlight what coffee producers are doing to set themselves apart while benefiting the local community.
This year we were offered several samples from Huila, Colombia sourced by Forest Coffee Importers. The story behind this coffee began two years ago when Forest connected with a professor in Huila, Colombia, who was applying some of his knowledge about microbiology and floristics to the local coffee community.
Forest and Cesar developed a unique coffee they called the Pink Borbon Creation. This harvest they partnered with Farmer Don Freddy Correa and his farm La Primavera in the Bajo Encanto Village in the Southern part of Huila.
This washed coffee first undergoes a 24-hour pre fermentation in the cherry, followed by a 36-hour fermentation in the mucilage in bags. Then the coffee is dried on raised beds for 15 days. Expect an exciting acidity and balanced sweetness.
