Jose Martinez is a special producer whose care and attention-to-detail are clear. His coffees are vibrant expressions of the marriage of excellent processing and complex varieties. Kyle Ramage, co-founder of Black & White Coffee Roasters, discovered Jose Martinez’s coffee on a cupping trip with the Osito team in Garzon, Huila, Colombia. On three separate times, while cupping; Kyle picked out this producer’s coffee as his highest scoring personal favorites. All three of Kyle’s favorite coffees on the table happened to be from Jose Martinez. It was no surprise that all three were mostly Pink Bourbon varieties which is one of Kyle’s favorites.
