Paradox Coffee Roasters has announced the release of its Colombia Sebastian Gomez Carbonic Maceration Pink Bourbon, the latest entry in its Single Origin Limited Edition coffee series, curated by Head Roaster Paul Golding.
Every month, Paradox Coffee Roasters showcases a new premium origin coffee, sourced from a select farm that uses an innovative processing method to deliver bold flavours in the cup.
The Colombian carbonic maceration coffee follows the success of the Colombia Purple Caturra Passionfruit origin coffee in April.
For May, Paul has selected Colombia’s champion coffee varietal, the Pink Bourbon, a rare, low yielding, special natural hybrid of a Red and Yellow Bourbon, cultivated by Sebastian Gomez at Finca La Divisa.
“It was during a recent tasting that this micro lot gained my immediate attention, being a rare varietal that has undergone an experimental processing method. Pink Bourbon has been my favourite coffee variety since my first encounter in Colombia some years ago. The Carbonic Maceration processing method used is ideal to extract the beauty of this amazing coffee,” says Paul.
“The innovative Carbonic Maceration fermentation process used by Sebastian Gomez is where the coffee cherries are placed inside sealed tanks for 42 hours and carbon dioxide is added to drive out the oxygen. This anaerobic fermentation is known for the incredible and unique flavours it can produce.”
Roasted by Paul at Paradox Coffee Roasters’ Sydney roastery, the Colombia Sebastian Gomez Carbonic Maceration Pink Bourbon origin coffee is available in a 200-gram bag and is best enjoyed as a filter coffee, delivering delicate fruit and floral tasting notes of pomegranate, rosewater, and white chocolate.
In addition to this limited release, during the month of May, Paradox Coffee Roasters is offering a silky and smooth Ethiopia Beloya Special Natural filter roast, along with a smooth and fruity Brazil Pedra Batista Natural espresso roast, available in 200-gram and one-kilogram bags.
