  • This lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours, during this fermentation period, citric acid and dehydrated mandarine skin were added to the anaerobic environment. Later the coffee was placed on raised beds below 35 degrees celsius until ideal moisture content was achieved.
  • The results are outstanding and a overload of well structured and balanced flavours from Tangerine, Mandarin, Tropical fruits and fig with a lovely rounded milk chocolate mouthfeel, think of a Jaffa lolly.
  •  In addition to cultivating coffee, Jairo and Luz Helena also grow mandarin oranges and cherimoya on the farm. 
  • Jairo Arcila is a third generation coffee grower in Quindio, Colombia. Married to Luz Helena Salazar they had two children together: Carlos and Felipe Arcila, the co-founders of Cofinet.
