Colombia Sugar Cane Decaf
Our Decaf comes from the beloved Planadas village in the department of Tolima in Colombia where the Agprocem association was created. The members united their efforts in their individual mills to form a uniform larger lot, all processed using the washed method,then sun-dried before being sent for decaffeination. Agprocem consists of 61 families producing Caturra, Castillo and Typica varieties mainly. The farms range between 1700 and 2000 m in altitude.
This lot was sourced prior to decaffeination,a new method for sourcing decaf straight from the farm. By selecting before decaffeination, we are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (sugar cane) processed products available.
For many years, Colombia was the number-one world producer of washed coffees, and the second-largest producer after Brazil. Today they are currently in the top five countries of coffee production with roughly 10 million bags per year.
