NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Colombia Yellow Bourbon Finca La Esmeralda

Country of Origin: Colombia
Colombia Yellow Bourbon Finca La Esmeralda
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
Our wonderful import/export partners Traviesa Coffee in Manizales have made a great support and distribution model for local Colombian farmers and we continue to get unusual microlots of smallholder growers. These exceptional coffees…usually represented at Badbeard's by Red, Yellow and Pink Bourbon, Geisha but also high-quality natural decaf and some conventional blends…are containerized and shipped directly to Portland and elsewhere in the US. Cupping scores at origin are always 85 and above but IMHO score higher here. The current Yellow Boubon just received today, 11/27, comes from producer Libardo Piedrahita Santa at his Finca La Esmeralda, in the village of Villafatima, Pitalito municipality. Sr. Santa has been growing for 15 years and tends about 20,000 shrubs at 1750 meters of elevation. During harvest season (September-November) only ripe cherry is picked, washed, fermented for 28 hours and then sun-dried. This microlot of 100%Yellow Bourbon evinces notes of citrus/orange, mango, pineapple, sweet. Prefer pourover methods for brewing, but acidity is not so high that espresso is not an option for our light-medium roast profile.

Badbeard Coffee's batch roaster 'rossalina'`
Rossalina is our small-batch roaster capable of roasting samples down to a half-pound with exquisite control. The hallmark of great coffee is consistent roast temperatures and even air flow, and Rossalina delivers on both counts.
"I'm glad to see that you roast your beans minimally so that the flavor and oils stay in the beans. I'll be ordering some Weinmark soon because I've been looking for someone who has naturally flavored bourbon beans. I'd like to see you extend that to rum as I think that would work well also. Please continue to keep the oil inside the beans!"
