Colombia - Caldono (Natural Decaf) - Espresso

Great decaffeinated coffees are hard to find.  So when we cup a good one, we get tend to jump on it.  Decafs used to be bland, watery, lack viscosity and taste like old liquorice. Not any more.

This natural Colombian coffee is a fantastic find, offering not just great body, but also a good level of complexity in the cup.

We have given this coffee the flavour notes of Dark Chocolate, Cherry & Pecan, with a descriptor of Smooth.

Background info:
This particular lot is chosen from among lots brought by four growers in the
municipality of Caldono, which is in the department of Cauca. They are located in
the villages of Potrerito, Cerro Alto, Santa Rosa, and El Gaucio. The coffee is picked and depulped the same day, then generally fermented dry for 16–28 hours, washed three to four times, and dried in parabolic dryers before being taken for E.A. decaffeination in-country.
