Bourbon - Variety (Burr-Bawwh)
A first of its kind – a single-variety coffee, dedicated to Bourbon, the king of the heirloom coffee varieties. Connoisseurs treasure the Bourbon variety for its deep, buttery chocolate and coffee flavor, its unique sweetness, and its gentle fruit overtones.
Our work in coffee has taught us the importance of variety: most of the flavors we love in coffee come from the plant itself, and the different kinds – or varieties – of coffee are what give us the wide spectrum of coffee flavor we’re lucky enough to experience.
Coffee is a fruit, after all, and like any fruit, variety makes a difference. A Granny Smith apple, green and tart, tastes completely different than a sweet, crisp Pink Lady. This is the essential difference of variety. While the wine world has recognized the role of variety for a long time – Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Merlot are all varieties of grape – we speak far too little about variety in coffee. We’d like to change that. Variety: Bourbon is the first-ever curated variety-specific coffee in the marketplace.
The composition of Variety: Bourbon will change over time, featuring different coffees from different farms, but always of the Bourbon coffee variety – exploring the full expression of flavor possible from this, the most influential and celebrated coffee variety in the world.
