Luis Anibal - Colombia - Ice Anaerobic - Filter

Expect a complex, sparkling acidity from this Pink Bourbon variety thanks to the experimental process.

Peach, oolong & candied orange

Between the Red and Yellow Bourbon trees, both exclusive varieties, the legendary Luis Anibal discovered a natural hybrid of the two. The trees look like Bourbon but the cherries ripen to a unique pinkish colour and the leaves are broad, in a similar fashion to Geisha trees. Luis took a gamble and gathered the seeds and planted them. Much to his delight the Pink Bourbon variety often showcases Geisha-like qualities with floral aromas and clean citrus notes. If that wasn’t enough, Luis decided to use an experimental ice anaerobic semi-washed process, which created this extremely complex, vibrant coffee featuring plenty of peachy notes and oolong tea.
