About this coffee :

This coffee was produced by Jairo Arcila at his farm Santa Monica in Vereda Villarazo, Quindio. Jairo Arcila is kind of a big deal in Colombia’s Quindio state; not only is the standard of his coffee extremely high, with the help of his sons (Felipe and Carlos) he is pioneering a revolution in the way coffee is processed in Colombia.

Traditionally Colombian coffee was all fully washed, Colombian coffee is regarded as some of thebest in the world, but it’s also subject to diseases such as the dreaded ‘roja’ or ‘leaf rust’.
In a bid to prevent crop losses, the Colombian government encouraged farmers to plant a disease resistant variety - Castillo.

Castillo is hardy and high-yielding but also not amazing when it comes to flavour (not bad, but not great). Recently, Jairo and his sons have begun experimenting with ways to improve Castillo for the specialty market out of their processing station La Pradera; this incredible microlot is the result.

This coffee is a fruit bomb. With lots of fruity notes of tangerine, raspberry & ripe cherries. Medium juicy body & silky mouthfeel. Definitely a coffee not for the common but for the passionate.
