Felipe Arcila is one of the founders of Cofinet, an exporting partner we've been working with. Beyond operating Cofinet, Felipe is also a coffee producer and owns coffee producing farms with his brother, Carlos, one of which is called Jardines del Eden where this beautiful tasting Castillo (coffee variety) was produced.
Felipe grew up in coffee. His father, Jairo, purchased his first coffee farm in 1987. Now with over 15 years of experience in the coffee industry, Felipe is dedicated and driven to make a positive impact on other coffee growers' lives and projects, through shared knowledge and hand-in-hand success.
This farm is within the department of Quindio, near the city of Pijao. The farm was purchased with the intention of experimenting and finding new methods and approaches to push the boundaries of coffee. Here they grow many exotic cultivars, such as Gesha, Sudan Rume, SL-28, Wush Wush, Laurina, and more. Jardines del Eden is one of the highest altitude farms in the region.
This coffee was first exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on, where wine yeast and peaches were also added to the fermentation tanks. After the fermentation stage, the coffee cherries were pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with peaches placed amongst the coffee until ideal moisture content was achieved.
