REGION: Pijao, Quindio
ALTITUDE: 1700-1900 MASL
VARIETAL: Pink Bourbon
PROCESS: Honey Wine Yeast & Peach
This beautiful lot for Freak & Unique X is a Honey Wine Yeast and Peach Infused Pink Bourbon. This coffee was grown by Felipe Arcila at the farm Jardines Del Edén. This coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on. During this fermentation stage peaches and wine yeast were added. The cherries were then pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with peaches placed amongst the coffee until the ideal moisture content was achieved.
This micro-lot is 100% Pink Bourbon. This varietal is currently under research in order to determine its origin. It is said that it is a mutation that took place at 2100 MASL in San Adolfo, Huila.
The small town of Pijao is located in Quindio, a mountainous section of the Colombian coffee growing region, also known as Eje Cafetero. Once at the epicentre of armed conflict in Colombia, today Pijao’s culture is rich in architecture, dance and music.
Hailing from a long line of coffee farmers, brothers Felipe and Carlos Arcila purchased Jardines del Edén in Pijao in recent years and have since planted a range of some of the world’s most exciting and sought-after coffee varietals.
