Colombia La Granada Espresso
Classics are good. They’re classic for a reason. Film stars, cars, dishes and recipes. Often we are striving for the different, the unique, but sometimes you have a coffee with a classic profile and it brings you to a place of real contentment. That’s how we feel about this washed Pink Bourbon from Gabriel Castano’s farm La Granada.
Grown at 1620 masl, this coffee has notes of caramel, maple syrup, dried fruits and apricots. It’s smooth it’s like pancakes for breakfast, and it reminds us of some of the best classic Colombian profiles.
Gabriel Castano himself is a fine producer, with 8,000 trees and a reputation in his municipality for introducing Pink Bourbon trees to his fellow producers. Whilst he can now no longer drink coffee in his old age, he still commits to his farm with great care and says he wouldn’t trade lives with anyone. Thanks for this cup Gabriel.
