Our decaffeinated coffees are the result of the 'sparkling water method'. Natural carbon dioxide (from prehistoric underground lakes) is combined with water to create a highly solvent substance, suited to removing the caffeine from coffee. It is a gentle, natural and organically certified process, respectful of the other coffee components that contribute to taste and aroma.
This lot is grown by 31 smallholders who live around the regions of San Ignacio and Jaen in Northern Peru. The altitude varies between 1650-2000 above sea level. Since producers own relatively small amounts of land, they generally manage the farm and do the picking and processing themselves, drying the coffee on plastic lined patios at their houses before forwarding on to the decaffenation process.
