Fruit and rich chocolate come together to create a complex and silky brew. The caramel-like sweetness coming from the sugarcane process makes a top-notch cup of decaf coffee. We love the apple notes in this bean, mixed with the lemony brightness and juicy mouthfeel. Although delicious enough to drink in the morning, the caffeine addiction is still strong, so this one stands as an evening nightcap.

The town of Buesaco lies high on a ridge in the Andes Mountains of the Nariño department in Colombia. The Cooperativa de Cafés Especiales de Nariño has its offices, cupping lab, and warehouses here, where the coop collects coffees from smallholders whose farms are tucked into the slopes surrounding the town. The cooperative works with more than 300 smallholders farmers all over the Nariño department who generally harvest coffee all year round. Here at the coop’s facilities, lots are analyzed and purchased, and the farmers are paid premiums on top of the market price. These premiums incentivize high-quality standards and good agricultural practices, like avoiding the usage of glyphosate and other chemicals.
Cooperativa de Cafés Especiales de Nariño cups coffees throughout harvest delivery to build lots that are uniform and consistent in bean size and cup profile. This lot of decaffeinated coffee in particular consists of small batches of beans from farms around the Galeras Volcano. This coffee was decaffeinated using the Ethyl Acetate (EA) decaffeination process.
