After being blown away by the 2nd Place Huila Mágico Pink Bourbon, and being overwhelmed by your response to it, we are thrilled to present to you our second ever Pink Bourbon variety offering - the 7th Place coffee in the 2020 Huila Mágico competition! Huila is one of our favorite growing regions in Colombia, so, needless to say, all of the top ten coffees of this competition are truly incredible. This coffee hits all the right notes with a super intriguing mint-like herbaceous flavor, combined with orange, dried fruits, and mild florals. Super fresh, clean, and sweet. The acidity won't knock your head off but it has just the right amount to complement and elevate the sweetness. We'll be drinking as much of this one as we can before it sells out. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Pink Bourbon is cultivated from hybridizations of Red and Yellow Bourbon - very rare but 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. We usually find the Pink Bourbons to have brighter acidity than Red/Yellow/Orange, and often better sweetness, perhaps in part due to the extra attention producers give these lots.

From our importer:

"From July 2020 to September 2020, The Coffee Quest Colombia organized the first ever Huila Mágico Coffee Contest for spectacular micro lots from Huila, in the south of Colombia. We received dozens of great lots in our station in Pitalito and we are proud to present the ten winners. The winners receive prizes in cash, equipment, and are offered a multi-year contract with us for their upcoming harvests.

The Top 10 were scored by our teams in Pitalito, Medellin, Amsterdam, and Austin. Among these lots you'll find Caturra, Pink Bourbon, and Geisha, both washed and naturals, with all sorts of fun, fruity notes and complex acidity."
