Colombia Jairo Arcila Festive Mandarin Washed Coffee (Micro-Lot)

Alongside our core range of blends and seasonal single origins, we love to try experimental coffees to see where the future of specialty coffee might be heading. With this unique offering we take a look into the technique of flavour infusion.

Jairo Arcila is a producer we have enjoyed excellent coffees from before, but this time is a little different. The cherries are harvested as usual for a washed coffee but then during the second fermentation and the drying stage the coffee is mixed with mandarin skin. Jairo also grows mandarin oranges on his farm so this was almost an inevitable experiment for a forward-thinking producer looking for his next experimental idea.

The resulting cup of coffee has the expected quality of a washed Colombian from Jairo Arcila with delicious chocolatey undertones, but the mandarin processing gives it an incredible marmalade-like quality; smooth and sweet with a lingering mandarin finish. Make sure you get hold of some of these unusual and interesting beans while they are still available; this kind of experimental coffee is limited in supply and won’t be around for long.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
