    About the farmer(s)

    Jairo Arcila Castillo [washed] — Colombia

    This coffee was grown by Jairo at his farm Santa Monica. The cherries from these Castillo shrubs were hand-picked at optimum ripeness, then transported on the same day to "La Pradera" [a mill owned by Jairo's son Carlos] for processing. The coffee cherries were floated and hand-sorted to remove any defects, followed by 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being de-pulped. The coffee was then washed & then dried in temperature controlled conditions until the moisture reduced to 11%.
