This is our 4th coffee from Jairo Arcila- we just can't get enough. He not only grows great coffee- his experimental processing is just super interesting and delicious! These Mandarin oranges were also grown on his farm.
Cat was lucky enough to meet his son Carlos at Glasgow Coffee Festival!
From Jairo " We started doing this process because we have excess mandarins in Covid we could not export, we had to pick them for tree health, and pay the pickers! So we started messing around with fermentation "

More about the Mandarin Process
The green coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48
hours. During this fermentation period, dehydrated mandarin
skin was added to the anaerobic environment. The coffee was
then gently washed and placed on raised beds mixed with
dehydrated mandarin skin below 35oC until ideal moisture
content was achieved.
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.
