It is such a joy to have Pastor's coffee back on our menu. His coffee continues to blow us away with the consistency and incredible flavor complexity and this harvest is a real standout. 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. Some we taste are passionfruit, mango, and fresh melon with incredible acidity and a lush floral honey body that is so, so pleasing. It is incredibly layered with flavors that continue to build as you drink the cup.
This year, we were able to increase our purchasing from Pastor greatly and between the Mitaca and the main harvest, we hope to have his coffee on our menu throughout the year.
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.
