Colombian decaf coffee produced by El Carmen Collective
Brown sugar, almonds and hibiscus
Colombia El Carmen is perfect for decaf drinkers who want to enjoy the delicious flavours of coffee without the caffeine! A standout clean and natural decaffeinated coffee available ground or as whole beans.
Our decaf coffee beans have been produced by the El Carmen Collective in Huila, Colombia. The coffees are harvested, fully washed and then sent to the collective’s shared plant to go through the sugarcane decaffeination process, which is a natural way to decaffeinate coffee.
The decaffeination plant uses water from the Navado del Ruis volcano, and natural ethyl acetate from fermented sugarcane, sourced from Palmira, Colombia.
The porosity of the coffee is increased through the use of steam, which begins to break the bond between caffeine and the bean. The bean is then submerged in the fermented sugarcane liquid, until 97% of the caffeine is removed. Following this, a final steam takes place to clean up the decaf coffee beans.
The end result is a beaut decaf coffee that has retained its gloriously sweet flavours for you to sip on and enjoy!
