This decaf comes from the Planadas area of the department of Tolima in Colombia. The lot is a collaborative effort of multiple producers in Planadas that make up the association Agprocem. Agprocem has 61 families comprising the association and between them the families produce Caturra, Castillo and Typica varieties mainly. The altitude of the family farms are between 1700 and 2000 masl. The coffees from each farm collaborating on this lot were all processed using the washed method then sun-dried before being sent for decaffeination.

Sugarcane E.A. Processing

These beans were processed using a natural decaffeination method. Many coffees are decaffeinated with the use of synthetic chemicals and high heat, which can negatively alter the taste of the coffee. However, by washing the beans using ethyl acetate derived from the natural fermentation of sugar cane, the structural integrity of the bean is protected, and the natural flavors of the coffee are able to shine through.
