This Pink Bourbon lot was grown at Jardines del Eden, a coffee farm featured for Season 3 of the Forward Lottery. This farm is within the department of Quindio, near the city of Pijao. The farm was purchased with the intention of experimenting and finding new methods and approaches to push the boundaries of coffee. Here they grow many exotic cultivars, such as Gesha, Sudan Rume, SL-28, Wush Wush, Laurina, and more. Jardines del Eden is one of the highest altitude farms in the region.
This Pink Bourbon lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation in ceramic tanks for 24 hours, then placed inside GrainPro bags and fermented for 60 hours inside a water tank that held a consistent temperature of 22C. After these controlled fermentations, the coffee was frozen for 72 hours, prior to being dried on raised beds until 10.5% moisture was achieved.Variety: Pink Bourbon
