These Bourbon cultivars are among the best coffees currently being produced at Finca Tamana. As with all coffees we buy from Elias, this Bourbon is super clean and sweet with a delicate fruity and subtle floral profile.
This is the thirdharvest we have of the red and pink Bourbon cultivars from Finca Tamana. I managed to get some seeds from a really nice red Bourbon in 2014 that I gave to Elias. We planted these seeds together in June 2014 and the trees were planted in a small hill at Finca Tamana in August 2015. At the same time Elias had gotten a handfull of seeds from a neighbour of some pink Bourbon. The difference is the red and pink colour of the coffee cherries when they are ripe but they also taste slightly different in the cup where the pink one is slightly more floral and the red one is slightly more fruity.
I am very happy that so far it is one of the best coffees we have tasted from Tamana. Elias has now planted more of these cultivars and we can expect even more of this delicious coffee already in 2023
