Getting product details...

From Climpson & Sons:

Our new decaf is from La Plata in Colombia.

Decaf shouldn't be an afterthought and this coffee was selected first for its quality of flavour and sustainable approach to processing.

This particular lot is the work of a number of smallholder growers from the area of La Plata within the department of Huila. As with all specialty coffee the cherry is picked and meticulously sorted before depulping and undergoing a classic washed process.

As part of a program initiated by Cafe Imports the next step in decaffeinating is breaking from industry norms (and unnecessary food-miles) with decaf processing occuring in-country before export. Using local natural sugar cane to create Ethyl Acetate, the coffee is soaked in a E.A solution to remove caffeine.
