Despite its growing popularity, the Pink Bourbon can be a tricky variety to grow and process. This is because the cherries undergo a complex color transformation from bright red to deep purple over the course of a week, making it challenging to identify the perfect harvest time. It takes real care and expertise to ensure the cherries are picked at peak ripeness, which allows the coffee's delicate floral and tea-like attributes to truly shine in the cup. As researchers continue to learn more about this variety, the exceptional quality and unique flavor profile of the Colombian Pink Bourbon makes it a highly sought-after coffee among discerning coffee lovers and professionals.


Washed process coffees are produced with the primary goal of creating an easily dried, consistent product, rather than influencing flavor. This process remains popular as it results in coffees that match consumer expectations for coffee taste - typically exhibiting clarity, balanced fruit notes, and acidity. 

The washed method involves removing the outer fruit layer from coffee cherries. This is typically done through a combination of mechanical depulping and controlled fermentation to break down the sticky mucilage. The fermentation period can vary greatly depending on the producer's preferences and practices. 

After fermentation, the coffee is washed to remove any remaining fruit. It is then dried, prepared for export, and stored. While the terminology around coffee processing has remained static, the methods have evolved to allow producers greater control over the final cup profile by manipulating various post-harvest variables.
