SAN JOSÉ BOURBON
SMOOTH / MILK CHOCOLATE / SWEET
We have known the Magaña family for more than 10 years and have visited their farm San José - which has been owned by the women of the family for four generations - several times. The ecological awareness is high - they use no pesticides - and the farm has a variety of animals and plants. Here they grow red, yellow and red bourbon and really do everything to optimize its delicate character. The coffee trees grow under shade and all coffee is picked by hand when fully ripe.
This is a smoothly full-bodied coffee with peach sweetness and soft chocolate in character. Good both as a brew & espresso.
