This coffee is produced by selected farms in the Popayan Region. The coffee is milled in Popayan and transported to be decaffeinated.
The decaffeination process for this coffee is unique. The caffeine is extracted from the coffee using a natural by-product of sugar cane and water. This process avoids excessive temperatures seen in other decaffeination processes and leaves a coffee with an enhanced sweetness that roasts and tastes much more like the original, caffeinated coffee.
The big advantage of this process, outside of the flavor profile, is that it was developed and is completed in Colombia. This allows for the verticalization of the supply chain without the extra costs and food miles of shipping the coffee to decaffeination plants in Mexico, Canada, or Germany and the profits stay within the country of origin.
