Felipe Arcila and his brother Carlos began growing coffee here at Jardines del Eden just two years ago when they decided to buy the farm. They now have more than 10 different varieties of coffee under production - this lot being 100% Castillo. This farm is dedicated to experimentation in processing and cultivating coffee. Here they are growing Pink Bourbon, Tabi, Gesha, SL28, Sidra, Wush Wush, Caturrón, Papayo and more.

This season Forward is proud to offer, Jardines del Eden Castillo, Pink Bourbon and Tabi.

This White Wine Fermentation included two stages of anaerobic whole cherry fermentation, with a drying phase between the two fermentations, leading to a very winey and dynamic acidity in the cup profile.
