Browning sugar aromatics on the nose lead into a deeply sweet cup with flavors of red grape and clementine anchored by a bittering cocoa base. This is a deeply enjoyable daily drinker from a master coffee producer.
Carlos Batres inherited Montecarlos in the mid 1980’s. The fifth generation of his family to steward this land, Batres has made Montecarlos his life’s work. Montecarlos primarily produces five varieties: Catuaí, Caturra, Bourbon, Pacamara, and Gesha. Passenger uses the Catuaí and/or Caturra in our Stowaway Blend each year, the Pacamara and Gesha are offered on our Reserve Lot menu and this, the Bourbon, is a Foundational Offering we hold in deep freeze storage and attempt to have available year-round.
