About this coffee;

Finca La Casa Negra is situated in Armenia of the Quindio department in Colombia; an area known for producing some of the best coffee in the world. The farm is owned by Carlos Arcila, a third-generation coffee farmer who inherited this land from his late father, Hernando, 20 years ago.

Until recently, Carlos has focused on producing large quantities of coffee from his farm but has now switched to a focus on quality as part of a long-term relationship with grower and distributor Cofinet’s Single Estate Program. The extended fermentation used for this coffee brings out more sweetness and black fruit notes. This process involves fermenting the cherries inside Grainpro bags and placing these bags into water tanks to help stabilise the temperature in a part of Colombia that often experiences very high temperatures.

This is sure to be one of many outstanding coffees produced at Finca la Casa Negra as Carlos develops his experience with high-quality processing and with the support of Cofinet behind him.
