Jairo Arcila is 63 year old engineer who, after working for a few years as an engineer, was offered a role by the same company to manage a dry mill in Pereira, Risaralda. Jairo has been working for the last 40 years for RACAFE, the second largest exporter of coffee in Colombia. At RACAFE, Jairo worked as a mill manager for 30 years and for the last 10 years he has been managing the lower grades business.

Jairo started growing coffee 35 years ago when his father got very sick and could not manage his farm anymore. After a few years Jairo managed to purchase his own land and continues growing coffee until today. 

This coffee was grown by Jairo Arcila at the farm Santa Mónica. This coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 72 hours with the pulp on. During this fermentation stage passion fruit pulp and wine yeast were added. The cherries were then pulped and placed to dry on raised beds with passion fruit pulp placed amongst the coffee until the ideal moisture content was achieved. This microlot is 100% Castillo. This variety was developed by Federación Nacional de Cafeteros. It is more productive than Caturra and resistant to coffee leaf rust
