High grade washed coffees from Cauca are blended, and processed using "Sugar Cane" EA process. This coffee punches in a weight class that includes some of the best coffees in the region. We get black cherry, and malt chocolate.
A mix of varieties--primarily Caturra, but also Colombia, Castillo, Typica--produced and washed 1,700 to 2,000 meters above sea level by members of Asorcafe Producers’ Association in Inzá, Cauca, Colombia.
This coffee is then decaffeinated via the ethyl acetate process, wherein a naturally occurring ester (found in fruits and fermented sugars) bonds to and removes caffeine. Ethyl Acetate coffees are known for their sweet, fruited, if not always balanced cups.
