JOSE EVER MUÑOZ

Producer Profile

Jose Ever Muñoz’s coffee is back for another season! This time, Jose took fourth place in the Central Region and 14th overall at the 2023 Copa de Oro competition. Like last year, Jose’s washed Pink Bourbon shows an impeccable balance of sweet red fruit and round sweetness. Jose has been cultivating coffee since 2012 and he manages his farm, La Esperanza, with his wife, Fernanda. Jose is a member of La Cooperative Divino Niño del Horizonte, the largest association with whom our importing partner Osito is partnered.

Huila

Of the many growing regions in Colombia, the mountainous department of Huila in the south west of the country grows the most coffee. Huila enjoys a wide diversity of micro-climates, temperatures, altitudes and coffee varieties. In fact, coffee is grown in 35 of Huila's 37 municipalities. All of this means that the coffee coming out of this region is as diverse as the variables that influence its production.

Pink Bourbon

Originally thought to be a natural hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon, this variety—which has been genetically confirmed as an Ethiopian Landrace—is famed for its characteristically pink ripened cherries and equally unique flavour characteristics, has become highly sought-after and more frequently cultivated as of late. On our trips to Colombia we've seen the variety proliferate across Colombia, particularly in Huila where it has become extremely popular amongst specialty focused coffee producers. Successful cultivation of this variety is difficult and requires careful isolation in order to maintain its distinctive colour and bright, fruity and floral profile.

Washed

Jose starts by fermenting his coffee in cherry for 24 hours. He then de-pulps the coffee and ferments it for another 30 hours. Finally, the coffee is dried for 30 days.
