From the importer:

Jairo Arcila is a third-generation coffee grower from Quindio, Colombia. He is married to Luz Helena Salazar and they have two children together, Carlos and Felipe Arcila, who are the co- founders of Cofinet. Jairo’s first job was at Colombia’s second-largest exporter, working as their Mill Manager for over 40 years until his retirement in 2019. Jairo bought his first coffee farm, Finca La Esmeralda, in 1987 and this is where he planted his first Caturra lot. He was fortunate enough to earn money by producing coffee on his farm in addition to working full time.

Using his savings, Jairo slowly managed to purchase five additional farms. After Esmeralda came Villarazo, Mazatlan, Santa Monica, Maracay and then Buenos Aires. During the harvest period, Jairo is able to provide a number of jobs to locals which has a significant economic impact on their community.

This lot is one of the new wave of infused coffees coming out of Colombia. All of Jairo's coffees are exceptional, and this is no different - undergoing a 72 hour dry fermentation during which mandarin skins were added. This style of infusions retains the innate characters of the original coffee, but transfers substantial aroma and subtle flavours from whatever it's infused with. As you'd expect from a honey processed Colombian coffee, this lot brings lively acidity and medium body to the table, with a redolent mandarin aroma and body, honey sweetness and orange marmalade.
