200hr Buenos Aires

200hr aerobically fermented natural

Soho is proud to present a truly one of a kind coffee, our 200hr Buenos Aires by Cofinet. Jairo Arcila may be a familiar name in Adelaide's and the world's coffee community, and has made strides in coffee fermentation and creative processing. A particular favourite of Soho's owner, Steve, this coffee boasts tonnes of interesting flavours ranging from apricots and plums to molasses, wine and spices. 

Brewing Tips

Buenos Aires is a bold and interesting cup which is packed with flavour, however it can be difficult to brew if unfamiliar with brewing long-ferment coffees. Ferment on coffee usually allows the profile to develop faster than other coffees, and over extraction can taste excessively full of tannins and savoury anise flavours. A few things we found helpful brewing this coffee:

  • The flavour develops quickly, so there is no need for a long pre-infusion.
  • To avoid over extraction, you may elect to shorten your brew time to highlight the acidity and sweetness, which will balance out any savoury tannin flavours.
  • This cup is pretty wild, we found that the coffee was easier to drink as a single shot long black, with milk or as a brewed coffee.

Suggested brewing recipes:

For Espresso:

20g in, 36ml out at 26 seconds

For Pour Over:

15g in, 300ml out at 2 minutes 30 seconds

Cofinet summary

This coffee was grown by Jairo Arcila at the farm Buenos Aires. This coffee was carefully hand-picked in order to select only the ripest cherries. The coffee was then placed in an aerobic environment for 24 hours before then being placed in Grainpro bags for 200 hours for further fermentation. The whole cherries were then sundried on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.
This microlot is 100% Castillo. This variety was developed by Federación Nacional de Cafeteros. It is more productive than Caturra and resistant to coffee leaf rust.
