Coffee Info

This coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on. During this fermentation stage, dehydrated banana was added. The cherries were then pulped and placed to dry on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.

This microlot is 100% Yellow Bourbon. This varietal is a natural mutation of the Coffee Arabigo. The name Bourbon was given after an island now called Reunion, off the coast of Madagascar

Producer Info

Luz Helena grew up in Armenia and has been producing coffee for the last 20 years. She owns Maracay, an 8-hectare farm located at 1450 m.a.s.l, in Armenia Quindio. Luz is Carlos and Felipe's mother, the co-founders of Cofinet and wife of Jairo Arcila.

Luz's passion for coffee was inspired by her husband's work on coffee farms and as a dry mill manager. Luz would hear Jairo talking about coffee and wanted to be more involved in the industry. With the support of Jairo, Luz started learning how to care for coffee plants and what steps she needed to take to produce high-quality, ripe cherries. Luz found dealing with insects very challenging at the start and would draw on Jairo's knowledge to help with this.

For several years now, her focus has been on producing Specialty Coffee. With the support of Cofinet, Luz has been able to improve farm practices and focus on producing the best cherries she can. Once ripe, the cherries are then processed by Cofinet at our processing station, La Pradera.
