Only when you have explored your coffee through and through will we tell you which beans it is:

Geisha, Pink Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, Tabi and Castillo varieties grow in the midst of native trees that provide the coffee plants with the necessary shade. In permaculture gardens, together with banana trees, cocoa trees and plantains, this coffee has been growing sustainably and organically for more than 25 years. Maria inherited her passion for coffee from her father Omar Arango, who runs the Finca San Luis not far from her farm. From him she learns the necessary know-how for the challenging fermentation processes and together they take the quality of Colombian coffee to a new level.

For this Pink Bourbon, the Arango family has focused on the honey processing method for preparing their coffee beans. After harvesting, the coffee cherries are first washed in order to separate the less ripe from the ripe cherries. The coffee cherries then ferment anaerobically, i.e. without oxygen, in airtight bags before they are depulped.

In contrast to natural processing , in which the whole cherry including the peel remains on the bean in order to then dry it in the sun, only the peel of the cherry is removed in the honey process. Only the mucilage (slime layer), which is under the shell, remains on the bean and is dried together with it in the sun. Since the consistency of this layer of mucus is the same as that of honey, this is referred to as "honey processing". This processing method, also known as pulped natural or semi-washed , is characterized by a balanced sweetness with a rather clear flavor profile at the same time. It is the middle ground between a natural and a washed treatment.
