Getting product details...

From Climpson & Sons:

Our new decaf is from Cauca in Colombia.

A medium-bodied and caramel-like flavour profile that more than makes up for the lack of caffeine. Baked apple acidity, and a chocolatey sweetness in this decaf.

We chose this coffee as it is part of a program dedicated to bringing the highest quality, naturally processed coffee to us from our partners at Café Imports. Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. By doing this, they are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (Ethyl Acetate, a natural solvent derived from fermented sugar or molasses products) processed products available.

This particular lot is chosen from among lots brought by five smallholder growers in the department of Cauca, from the villages of El Cerrito, Rio Blanco, Rio Sucio, and Uribe, all within the El Tambo municipality of Cauca. The coffee is typically picked and depulped the same day, fermented dry for 16–20 hours, and washed three times before being dryed in parabolic dryers. It is taken for E.A. decaffeination in-country before being shipped.

The proximity to the equator along with the regions stable seasons and terroir means the cup makes for a baked apple acidity, medium body and caramel-like profile.
