Lock up your inhibitions and throw away the key. It's time to get weird.
Freak & Unique is our curated curiosity collection of the most off-the-wall coffees we can find.
Our selection is all about highlighting the outstanding and the abnormal. Each coffee is a sensory journey to be savoured and remembered.
All coffees in our Freak & Unique series run alongside a commissioned series of artworks, with sales of the coffee feeding into our Art & Industry work, fuelling independent artists and creatives.
For the thirteenth edition of Freak & Unique we've commissioned artist Fleur Yearsley to create a series of works.
This very exciting coffee comes from the Finca Villarazo, owned by Jairo Arcila, a third-generation coffee grower from Quindio who’s sons founded the export company Cofinet. Jairo bought his first farm, Finca La Esmeralda, in 1987 whilst working at Colombia’s second-largest exporter where he was their Mill Manager for over four decades. Before his retirement in 2019, he was fortunate enough to have been able to buy five additional farms in the surrounding area, providing jobs to the local community.
FARM: Jairo Arcila, Finca Villarazo
REGION: Armenia, Quindio
PROCESS: Anaerobic Fermentation
For this microlot, cherries were strictly picked with the same level of ripeness and immediately transported to La Pradera processing station. The coffee was then pulped and later exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours at 23 degrees Celsius with passion fruit pulp and wine yeast. Finally, the coffee is shadow- dried in parabolic dryers to ideal moisture content, making for a distinct and elegant experience.
