    The team here at Seven Seeds is over the moon to welcome Willyan Zambrano
    back to the menu once again. It was one of our favourite releases last year, proving
    to be a dream to roast and drink. This lot is straight out of Pitalito, Hulia, where
    Willyan and his wife, Maria Esther Lopez, produce exquisite coffees on their farm La
    Montañita. Most of what they grow is Pink Bourbon. Last year, we put forward that
    pink bourbon was a natural mutation between red and yellow bourbon, and believed
    it to be recessive and unstable, meaning that it was hard to grow consistently
    without careful cultivation. However, we learned that this might not be the case.
    The variety is native to Huila. The producer who discovered it noticed the cherry
    ripened with a pink tonality, and the trees had similarities to the Bourbon varietal.
    Recent scientific research has shown that the tree bears more genetic resemblance
    to Ethiopia landrace and is uniquely its own varietal. Slightly less mysterious,
    definitely still romantic and undeniably a beautiful lot.

    A continued focus for our sourcing team was to reestablish our presence with
    producers in Colombia. We aim to strengthen relationships with producer groups
    we have used in the past and identify producers with whom we could establish
    long-term exclusive partnerships. Our goal is to commit to a certain amount of
    AA/AAA grade coffee from La Montañita each harvest. In the short term, we are
    putting in place a retail pricing structure that will allow us to make a direct financial
    contribution to Willyan and Marie on top of the price we pay to our origin sourcing
    partners, Caravela. This payment would serve as a gesture of appreciation for the
    quality of these lots and our growing relationship with Willyan.
