[ 3 ] Story 


Arcila Family

You may be familiar with the names already.

This lot was produced by Arcila family from Cofinet. We have been lucky enough to secure some of their "Infused coffee" which are Mandarine, Cinnamon, Passionfruit and Strawberry. 

This lot is a Peach Process. 

The perfume of the peach is intoxicatingly sweet and powerful. As always, we roasted this coffee for filter drinker in mind.

We have developed (Roast degree) this coffee just enough to maximise the aromatic and perfect balance on sweetness and acidity. 


Peach Process

The coffee was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 72 hours with dehydrated peaches and tartaric acid. 

Later, the coffee was slowly dried on raised beds, below 35 degree celsius, until ideal moisture content was achieved.

If the coffee tastes:
  • Too weak and dry finish ➞ Grind Finer
  • Too strong and sour ➞ Grind coarser
But keep the coffee to water ratio always the same.
