COLOMBIA • JOSE DANIEL MUÑOZ
Daniel Muñoz comes to coffee by way of sugar. His family farm grew sugar cane and he started a panela factory in San Augustin before purchasing his Villa Camila farm. His aim was to grow special level coffee and interesting varieties, like this Pink Bourbon. As he states, “We have to have a life with purpose, we have to take care of the environment, we have to improve our quality of life, we have to commit ourselves 100% to quality” which is clear with this incredible lot.
Pink Bourbon is a hybrid stemming from Red and Yellow Bourbon with a slight influence from Catimor varieties. It is rare and often means tropical and floral cups. Much like Muñoz’s offering, which smells like orange blossoms and honeysuckle and brings bright papaya and cantaloupe notes that mingle with a surprising and earthy cola sweetness.
