For the past two years, Rafael Mateus has graced our menu with his exceptional coffee, and he never fails to impress. With a coffee pedigree that stretches back to his childhood, Rafael learned the art of coffee-making from his father at the tender age of ten. Now, four decades later, his passion for cultivating Colombia's finest coffee remains undimmed. This Pink Bourbon lot we purchased is particularly special as Rafael fermented the cherries for 45 hours in anaerobic vats, resulting in a wickedly sweet, fruit-forward coffee that is still sparklingly clean.

The man is a master and we are thrilled to have him on the menu once again.
