SEBASTIAN GOMEZ - filter roast ⚡️new⚡️


funk/tropical fruit salad

Roasted Tuesday 11th February 2020

Sebastian had been living in Bogota for 8 years before returning home to take over the management of his fathers coffee farm.

His father had been growing commodity coffee but Sebastian convinced him to plant coffees that receive a better income like Geisha & this pink Bourbon.

The coffee was picked then taken to La Pradera mill where it was dry fermented in a tank for 24 hours, placed in Grainpro bags{giant grain storage bags} for 60 hours at below 22°c & finally sun-dried on raised beds at temperatures not exceeding 35°c.

This insanely long fermentation process leads to some strange flavours of made up ripe fruit that could only exist in Colombia..

Bourbon is a natural mutation of Typica originating from La Réunion {until 1848 known as Île Bourbon}. The coffee was planted in 1708 by the French who acquired seeds from the Dutch, who in turn acquired them from Yemen. Colour of the cherries is  due to a recessive gene, they can be either red, yellow, orange or like this offering, pink when ripe. Bourbon is 1/3rd more productive than Typica.
