Buenos Aires Estate has been a family farm for three generations. The breathtakingly beautiful farm spans the side of a pronounced mountain, at the very top of which sits a natural wildlife refuge. The farm benefits from an orientation to the wind that doesn’t incur the same crop damage as do some others. Bourbons, Bourbon hybrids and Bourbon mutations make up the types of Bourbon Arabica produced. One characteristic common to most (but not all) Bourbons is a 20 percent to 30 percent higher bean yield than the Typical varietal. While there are exceptions, Bourbons generally produce best in elevations between 3,500 feet and 6,500 feet. Because the soil and climate influences the flavor of the coffee, Bourbons have a slight taste variation depending on where they are grown. Bourbon (Bour-bone) is one of the two original coffee varietals together with the venerable Typica. It is named after an island that was once known as Bourbon, now Réunion, east of Madagascar, where it was discovered in the 18th century. It was later planted in Brazil and El Salvador, earning a reputation for its balance and complex acidity. While red-skinned Bourbons are most common, some of the fruit ripen to a yellow or, rarely, orange or pink. These natural variations are named for their skin color (Yellow Bourbon, Orange Bourbon, etc.) and are often prized for their uniqueness. Like other heirloom coffees, Bourbons require extra effort and care from farmers; they’re harder to grow than robust, man-made hybrids, requiring conditions to be just right, and they tend to be lower-yielding—but the payoff can be big.

Fascinating. Fruity. Complicated.

(I roast this myself.) If you like variety, like experimenting, and don't mind a very complex and potentially-powerful transition of flavors... Well, this one is unlike pretty much any coffee I've ever had. Warning, while you'll get the alluring hints of butter, cocoa, etc., the pure coffee flavor is subtle and dominated by these complex slightly tangy fruit notes, and whatever else is going on here -- I roast to just about 410F and it's a risky area [for me] since, for me, these they get bitter quickly above that [and I don't enjoy it as much there, personally]. I've ordered this twice, the last time 10lbs. It's been delightful to have over and over, but one of my family members points out that it's somewhat *missing* that plain coffee taste. I can understand where she's coming from, but I think it might also depend on the roast level. Going to 410F is right amidst the 2nd crack for me -- and I haven't tried going too much lighter (but I prefer it maybe just below that point).
In any case, for a fascinating and memorable experience, I highly recommend this coffee.
