We are thrilled to welcome Pastor's coffee back on our menu! His coffee continues to blow us away with consistency and incredible flavor complexity and this lot from his main harvest is just stunning. The cup is deeply complex, showcasing everything we love about Pink Bourbon. We taste a huge range of tropical fruit flavors that make it hard to pick out just a few and we find this time around his coffee has amplified flavor and very lovely florals. It is incredibly layered with flavors that continue to build as you drink.
Pastor is a 3rd generation coffee producer. His lineage goes back to some of the earliest producers in the area. He has spent his entire life as a coffee producer, starting at the age of 18, and has established himself as a well-respected grower. We find this evident in the cup and feel truly lucky to be able to work with him.
His farm, El Placer, is 4 Hectares and started with only 4,000 Caturra trees after years of working alongside his parents who grew Caturra and Typica. Pastor has and continues to play an instrumental role in the development of specialty coffee in the area. Now Pastor grows some of the most beautiful Pink Bourbon we have tasted, and he also just started planting some SL-28 which we are thrilled to taste in the coming years.
