ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Coffee remains an important crop for Cundinamarca. It has improved the socioeconomic condition of the region and employs an immense number of workers.
Coffee plants found ideal living conditions throughout the Eastern Andean range, and to a smaller extent on the slopes of the Llanos Orientales (Eastern Plains). Boundless biodiversity and generous ecosystems yielded diverse coffee terroirs. These elements along with eco-friendly coffee producers allowed coffee to grow and flourish in a predominantly shade systems.
The coffee tradition is the pillar and main source of income for thousands of families in Cundinamarca. Ecotourism has been gaining importance as well. It is the perfect opportunity for families that want to experience the seed-to-cup process and enjoy amazing natural wonders. There are seven coffee routes throughout 69 municipalities in Cundinamarca. They are all characterized by their deep commitment to sustainable coffee production on lush mountainous landscapes.
COLOMBIA SUGARCANE PROCESS
We sorted through countless decafs until we found the sugarcane process. Our Sugarcane Process Decaf from Cundinamarca, Colombia is AMAZING! Decaf has never tasted so good.
Only done in Colombia, it leaves the coffee tasting just like it did before processing. Balanced low tones of dried fruit sugar and rich milk chocolate with a sprinkle of fresh berries goodness make for a complex cup. This is possible thanks to a “natural” decaffeination process. This process extracts around 97% of the caffeine, and it begins with fermentation of molasses derived from sugarcane to create ethanol. Because ethyl acetate comes from sugar cane and is an organic compound that can effectively remove caffeine, the original coffee’s flavors will NOT be extracted like in Swiss Water Process and will rather leave a pleasant, sweet flavor – exceptionally delicious and complex. It tastes so good, you’d never guess it’s decaf.
We’re so excited to share the hard work and care that has gone into producing this incredible decaf coffee. So Rejoice, dear Decaf People!
