Jorge Mira's Pink Bourbon is bursting with grapefruit sharpness, praline sweetness and floral hops. It's got everything you want in the morning: coffee, pastry and juice. 

El Jaragual farm is in Amalfi, Antioquia, in the North of Colombia. Jorge Mira oversees the growing of many premium varietals of coffee at El Jaragual, which spans 150 hectares at an altitude of 1500 MASL. Large portions of the farm is dedicated forest, both conserved native and managed sustainable pine (Jorge was a forestry engineer). Refined processing techniques enhance and stabilise the aromatic qualities present in the coffee beans.  Extended fermentation, yeast inoculation, warm rinses and cold quenches are all used to take the pink bourbon coffee to the next level of flavour.  

Pink Bourbon is both vibrant and intricate and the result of great care and invention.

Limited Release coffee is roasted and dispatched each Friday. The cut-off for orders is Friday at 8am. Any other items in your order will be dispatched at the same time.

Jorge's processing methods are meticulous and controlled.  The beans are washed at 45°C to create a thermal shock. Then an extended fermentation with select yeasts for 62 hours at below 25°C.  The fermentation is then sealed with a 5°C wash before drying occurs at 40°C.
