About the Award-Winning Wilton Benitez Pink Bourbon: Sourced from renowned coffee producer Wilton Benitez, this single-variety Pink Bourbon was first discovered and cultivated in Colombia. Recognized for its intense floral notes, pleasant acidity, and higher glucose content resulting in a sweeter cup and silkier body, this unique coffee captivates with its juicy, sugary sweetness. Tasting notes include pink bubblegum, strawberry blossom, blackberry buttercream, orange, and purple grape.

Innovative Coffee Processing at the Farm Level: Wilton Benitez, a chemical engineer turned high-end coffee grower, spearheads innovation in coffee processing. His decades of experience and scientific background converge to create unique and nuanced coffees. The meticulous processing of this Pink Bourbon lot involves ozone gas and ultraviolet light sterilization, anaerobic fermentation with specific yeast strains, washing, and ecological drying—a testament to the dedication to quality and flavor enhancement.
