Arkib Kopi always excited to source rare varietal coffee for our coffee lover. One of our favorite varietal is Pink Bourbon. It is hybrid between Yellow Bourbon and Red Bourbon that give grain looks like 'pink' color. Pink Bourbon is a rare varietal and said to be resist to leaf rust disease. In order to preserve single varietal like Pink Bourbon, farmers will isolate the coffee into lot to avoid from mix with other coffee varietal.
We simply love Bourbon varietal because it known as sweet coffee. With Pink Bourbon we noticed it has distinct character that give taste of sweet sour fruits such as guava, rose hips or chamomile. The sweetness of sugar brown taste so intense like a creme brulee. Pink Bourbon definitely a gem for specialty coffee lover. Simple taste profile but with high quality.
