THIS PINK BOURBON LOT WAS SELECTED BECAUSE OF ITS CLEAN RED APPLE SWEETNESS AND RASPBERRY ACIDITY. A BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSION OF TERROIR. 

The producer, Francisco Becerra, owns and operates his farm in the often overlooked area of Suaza, Huila, with his wife and two children. 

The cherries are first picked and stored for 12 hours, increasing pigment transfer - this both slightly changes the colour of the seeds, as well increasing florality during this resting period before fermentation. ⁠ They are then depulped and fermented for 24-30 hours before being washed and then dried in a parabolic dryer for 3 weeks. This is the first time that Fjord has purchased a coffee that was mechanically dried, as opposed to sun dried on raised beds. ⁠

This lot was purchased through Osito, who co-own a coffee farm in the Suaza area and have made it a priority to find and promote local, quality producers.
