about the origin
This blend lot of Pink Bourbon coffees comes from a community of small producers in San Agustín, located in Huila. These farmers are still working to cultivate these young plants, and Fairfield and CCS created this blend lot in order to jumpstart the reach and income of the farmers while their crops mature. We are excited to see each of the contributing farmers develop their own unique pink bourbon microlots in the next few harvest seasons, and we are anticipating an increase in quality and producer profit over time.
