More about Felipe:
Felipe Arcila is one of the founders of Cofinet, an exporting company in Colombia. He is also a coffee producer and owns a farm with his brother, Carlos, called Jardines del Eden.
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 Castillo lot was grown at Jardines del Eden 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.
After harvesting only the ripest, deep red/purple Castillo cherries, this lot was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation in ceramic tanks for 24 hours, then placed inside GrainPro bags and fermented for 48 hours inside a water tank that held a consistent temperature of 22C. Following these sophisticated fermentations, this coffee was dried for 14 days in raised beds.
