This fully washed Colombian coffee comes from 20 smallholders in the Hulia region that grow their coffee within the central cordillera of the Andes that go through Pitalito, Acevedo, Palestina, Timaná, and Suaza. The coffee is cupped more than 5 times before it reaches our hands to ensure its consistency in every link of the supply chain. This 85+ scoring coffee is the perfect candidate for a decaf as it has lots of fruit and a full body, which really hold up in the decaf process.
The El Yalcon has been decaffeinated by the synthetically chemical free ‘Sugar Cane process’. This involves the coffee being immersed in water with a natural solvent that is found in sugar cane that extracts caffeine from green coffee. The whole decaffeination is processed at the Descafecol plant in Manizales, Colombia, meaning the coffee doesn’t need to travel far!
