We only source naturally decaffeinated coffee for our decaf coffees. We never purchase traditionally (with harsh chemicals) decaffeinated beans. We rotate our decaf’s region occasionally as we find a great tasting decaf.
These are the current details about our coffee, supplied by our partners at Genuine Origin:
“Located in a biological Conservation Corridor, Valle del Cauca lies between the National Park of Tatama and “serrania de los paraguas”. Some years ago, this region was identified by Conservation International as one of the two main conservation corridors in Colombia. Farmers in this region are strongly aware of the importance of the preservation of natural resources, water management and friendly environmental practices. Valle del Cauca was once a prominent producer of coffee, but much of the land is now dedicated to producing sugar cane. This coffee was decaffeinated using the Sugarcane Process. The process uses ethyl acetate – an organic compound found in sugar cane – to remove 97% of the caffeine from coffee beans. The process tends to leave a pleasant, sweet flavor.”
Because of the Sugarcane process, this coffee does not lose a lot of its original flavors, and the final cup is actually sweeter because of it! The flavors are exceptionally delicious and complex.
It tastes so good, you’d never guess it’s decaf.
• Each Bag is 12 oz. of fresh roasted coffee
In the cup expect tones of toasted nuts and maple syrup situated alongside sweet citrus and mild black cherry.
