This very exciting coffee comes from the Finca Villarazo, owned by Jairo Arcila, a third-generation coffee grower from Quindio whose sons founded the export company Cofinet. Jairo bought his first farm, Finca La Esmeralda, in 1987 whilst working at Colombia’s second-largest exporter where he was their Mill Manager for over four decades. Before his retirement in 2019, he was fortunate enough to have been able to buy five additional farms in the surrounding area, providing jobs to the local community. For this microlot, cherries were strictly picked with the same level of ripeness and immediately transported to La Pradera processing station. The coffee was then pulped and later exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours at 23 degrees Celsius with passion fruit pulp and wine yeast. Finally, the coffee is shadow-dried in parabolic dryers to ideal moisture content, making for a distinct and elegant experience.
