The Autumnal Equinox™ CoffeeStory
Cultivate the crispness of fall with our Autumnal Equinox™ coffee. These coveted Pink Bourbon beans come from the Huila region of Colombia, a unique climate recognized with Denomination of Origin status (similarly to Champagne or Tequila). Tiny farms there focus on quality, not quantity, and are rewarded by regular Cup of Excellence wins. Our fantastic lot from Grupo Asociativo los Gigantes is honey processed to retain the complex flavors of a natural coffee while still developing the smoothness of washed coffee.

We boldly admit that our Light Roast is on the darker-side of this description. Many coffees do not develop well at this stage, tending to be acidic or even astringent, and sometimes featuring strong grassy or vegetable tastes. However, a few coffees fare well with this roast level and have a bright, eye-opening sassiness to them with just a touch of sweet.
