The coffee story

Felipe is one of the co-founders of Cofinet. His father, Jairo Arcila, was a big influence in his life and sparked his interest in coffee. Felipe lives in Armenia, Quindio with his mother, Luz Helena Salazar and father. He is very motivated in expanding the horizons of Colombian coffee and loves experimenting with coffee. He is also the founder of the internship programs at Cofinet.  

The process

This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours, later placed inside grain pro bags for 60 hours maintaining temperature below 22 degrees celsius by placing the coffee inside a water tank. Later, placed on raised bed until 18% moisture content is achieved, afterwards coffee is placed inside grain pro bags again for 50 hours and later left to dry below 40 degrees celsius on raised beds until 10.5% moisture content was achieved.

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
