This coffee is produced by selected farms in the
Popayan region. The coffee is milled in Popayan and
transported to Caldas 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
enhanced sweetness which roasts and tastes much
more like the original, caffeinated coffee.
The big advantage of this process, outside of the
flavour 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
