GETTING TO KNOW our Decaf
Often frowned upon, decaf coffee can be delicious when done well. We believe they should be treated with the same respect as our other coffees, and we’re on a mission to bring you the cream of the non-caffeinated crop.
Our current decaf is a gem. In the cup we find notes of Mandarin, Golden Raisins, & Cane Sugar with a smooth finish.
We source these stunning decaffeinated beans from the municipality of Suaza in Colombia through Osito Coffee.
Osito coffee work very closely with a local collective called "Divino Niño", who have grown from 25 producers to over 50 in the past 3 years.
To help discover new local talent, Osito founded its annual cup competition with Divino Niño called the Copa Suaceña. It is through this competition that they have found many great single farms and small produces with great potential and exceptional coffees in the region.
This is a special lot processed with the Sugar Cane Decaf Process where natural extractors obtained from the fermentation of sugar cane (Natural Ethyl Acetate) moisten the coffee. The coffee is then washed several times with this natural solvent to reduce the caffeine down to the correct levels.
Once this process is finished the coffee must be cleaned of the remaining ethyl acetate by using low-pressured saturated steam before moving onto the drying stage. The care in this process delivers a cup with sweet and nutty notes and a citrusy aftertaste.
