The Artery - Augusto's Gusto
Pink bourbon: cherry, peach, minty herbaceous mango, honey
Augusto Ortega, and other producers of his generation from San Agustin, have reached a certain coffee royalty status among those in the know. You are drinking coffee that is essentially grown by java's Mick Jagger.
We are truly are honoured to have the privilege of roasting his incredible Pink Bourbon, an incredible coffee variety that represents the culmination of a life spent perfecting the art of coffee growing.
