Colombia Pink Bourbon Espresso
Last year’s coffee from La Muralla was one of our favourites. From a collective of young producers in Huila, the group are all in their mid to late 20s, subverting ideas and images of what we might have when we think of the traditional coffee farmer.
That’s not to say there’s not importance in age and wisdom, of course there is - but there’s also positives to youth. Think a little zing, a little pep, the ability to think outside of the box, to push forward and make change. La Muralla work with Osito, an importer we also work with regularly, who claim that the average cup score to these coffees is so high that finding anything at 84 is a challenge. I guess that youthful glow doesn’t just pertain to the producers themselves.
This Pink Bourbon from the young producers makes a beautiful espresso. Bright, green apple crispness, with some citrus and a jammy mouthfeel.
