This exceptional decaf coffee comes from a collective of smallholder producers surrounding the town of Monte Bonito in the foothills of the Andes.  

For decaffeination, the coffee first undergoes steaming and is then moistened with hot water to allow the beans to swell and soften. This prepares the coffee for extraction of the caffeine, which is achieved with the fermentation of sugar cane and not from chemical synthesis. It is this process that helps to preserve the integral flavours of the coffee. 
 

Most of the coffee farms from this region are very small, with only between 1 - 3 hectares, and all are farmed individually – maintaining the tradition of campesinos. During the harvest the coffee is picked, depulped and then fermented before being transported to the collection point in town to be stored together.
