The coffee story

Jairo Arcila is a third generation coffee grower in Quindio, Colombia. Married to Luz Helena Salazar they had two children together: Carlos and Felipe Arcila, the co-founders of Cofinet. Jairo’s first job was at Colombia’s second-largest exporter as their Mill Manager. And continued to work there for over 40 years until his retirement in 2019. 
 
Jairo bought his first coffee farm, Finca La Esmeralda in 1987, where he planted his first Caturra lot.  He was fortunate enough to earn money by producing coffee while also working full time for the local exporter. Using his savings Jairo slowly managed to purchase five additional farms. First Villarazo, then Mazatlan, Santa Monica, Maracay and Buenos Aires. 

The process

This coffee is picked and hand sorted at Jairo's farm in Armenia, Quindio. Later transporter to Cofinet's processing station (500m away) where it was dry fermented for 16 hours. Later, cherries are floated for the second time and placed in parabolic dryers to ideal moisture content.

Quality comment
Algrano
Super interesting in terms of flavours, refreshing and out of ordinary. Combination of cookie dough, cinnamon and florals, with medium citric acidity that changes to tartaric towards the end of the cupping, lingering finish and smooth body.

FAQ


Shipping
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.
