We are excited to offer this Origin Select Decaf from Café Imports! This coffee will work well for espresso based drinks or as your favourite brewed coffee.

Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. Café Imports has carefully chosen microlots to be decaffeinated, in order to offer an even higher-end line of traceable options.

These beans were processed using a natural decaffeination method. Many coffees are decaffeinated with the use of synthetic chemicals and high heat, which can negatively alter the taste of the coffee. However, by washing the beans using ethyl acetate derived from the natural fermentation of sugar cane, the structural integrity of the bean is protected, and the natural flavors of the coffee are able to shine through.

Huila is a mountainous department in southwestern Colombia.
According to the Colombian Coffee Grower’s Federation (FNC), in 2016 Huila produced 2.6 million 60-kilo bags, which accounted for 18% of the country’s coffee. That same year, Neiva’s Chamber of Commerce reported that there are 154,800 hectares of land dedicated to coffee in the department.
But Huila’s value isn’t just in its quantity of coffee. It also lies in its quality. It regularly produces Cup of Excellence-winning lots. What’s more, in 2013, it received Denomination of Origin status – the same status awarded to champagne, Roquefort cheese, and many other foods and beverages with unique, location-specific characteristics.
