Brewing Orange Bourbon
Full-bodied with lingering sweetness, this year’s harvest of Orange Bourbon is yet another impeccably well processed lot from Anny Ruth and her team at Loma La Gloria.
Pour Over preparation yields a cup with delicate fruit notes and a syrupy body. Expect the mild acidity of ripe stone fruits (think plums, figs, and apricots), cooling to present the intense sweetness of brown sugar.
AeroPress brewing will offer a slightly more fruitful cup with a dense, cream-like mouthfeel. A wide array of stone-fruit notes are matched by pleasantly earthy flavors, such as cocoa and toasted almond; with time the sweetness of brown sugar makes its way to the forefront of the palate.
