Map #7: Jairo Arcila
Map #8 Coming Soon
First things first, this coffee is not subtle: it tastes like strawberries. It’s mouthwateringly sweet, almost gelatinous in body, with a supportive gentle acidity. Viscous and syrupy with a boozy undercurrent, Jairo Arcila is a coffee that oozes decadence—to be enjoyed like a dense chocolate brownie or a glass of ruby port.
Coffee production has been in the Arcila family for three generations. Jairo heads up five farms, and is father of Carlos and Felipe Arcila who co-founded Cofinet, the green supplier we source this coffee from. Cofinet represent many speciality coffee growers in Colombia, with an emphasis on high quality and experimental coffees. This lot was fermented anaerobically with strawberries and wine yeast which lends this coffee its unique flavour.
