About This Coffee

Grown by Felipe Arcila at Jardines de Eden. This coffee was exposed to an initial dry anaerobic fermentation of 24hours. The cherries are then placed inside grain pro bags for 60 hours maintaining temperature bellow 22 degrees by placing the bags inside water tanks. After this the coffee is dried on raised beds untill 18% moisture content is achieved. The coffee is then placed back inside grain pro bags for a further 50 hours. Finally the cherries are dried on raised beds to 10.5% moisture content. 

Jardines del Eden is the first farm to be purchased by Carlos and Felipe Arcila of Cofinet. The Farm has existing Castillo and has recently had some the most exciting varieties planted there.

This microlot is 100% Castillo. This varietal was developed by the Federacion de Cafeteros. It is more productive than Caturra and resistant to coffee leaf rust.
