Felipe Arcila is one of the founders of Cofinet. Beyond operating Cofinet, Felipe is also a coffee producer and owns coffee producing farms with his brother, Carlos, one of which is 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 farm is 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.
This lot was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours, during this fermentation de-hydrated mandarin skin was added to the anaerobic environment. After the fermentation process it was gently washed and dried on raised beds mixed with de-hydrated mandarin skin until ideal moisture content was achieved. This microlot is 100% Castillo.
