Casa Espresso: Colombia, San Agustin, Washed Decaf

Subscription only coffee

Getting product details...

From Nino @ Casa Espresso:

Not what you would expect from a decaf, complex acidity reminiscent of nectarines, and a caramel finish to round off the cup. Well balanced but interesting.

Location & Farmer

This specific offering comes from multiple share-holding farmers that reside in the municipality of San Agustín, Huila. This town is well-known for its coffee production and Cafe Imports has visited the farmers of San Agustín on a bi-yearly basis for the past six years now. It is a truly beautiful place filled with beautiful people, and wonderful coffee. This coffee is a mix of Castillo and Caturra varietals.

Process

The ripe coffee undergoes the washed process- ripe cherries are picked, sorted and pulped, then soaked in fermentation tanks, drained and dried by the sun and mechanical driers.

The decaf process uses a by-product of sugar extraction from sugarcane, known as Ethyl Acetate. This helps the coffee keep a complex flavour profile.
