Forward purchased 10 x 35kg of Felipe Arcila Natural Anaerobic Tabi.
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% Tabi. 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.
Tabi is the result of research and development done by CENICAFE, based in Colombia. It's a variety that was created by crossing Timor Hybrid, Typica and Bourbon. It's known for good cup quality as well as resistance to coffee leaf rust.
This coffee is hand harvested following a strict ripeness criteria, then underwent a short fermentation in an anaerobic environment, and following that the coffee was dried on raised beds in whole cherry until ideal moisture content.
