THE LOVE OF COFFEE:
Few things irk me more than the "death before decaf" motto. I fell in love with coffee for its flavour, uniqueness, and rituals. Caffeine is just a magical bonus on those especially tired mornings. Meaning I will forever advocate for well-processed and well-roasted decaf because it is every bit as delicious as its caffeinated counterparts. My motto: great coffee is great coffee.

This is a Mountain Water Processed to remove caffeine. Their process excels at maintaining the unique elements of origin while removing caffeine. It start with a 'Green Coffee Extract (GCE)' in one tank and fresh crop beans in another. Seeking equilibrium, caffeine compounds migrate across a series of carbon filters, which trap it for removal. The GCE is refreshed and ready for re-use. By leveraging temperature and time with precession, the end result is 99.9% caffeine-free.
 
ORIGIN:
Rony Lavan is an ambitious and quality-driven cupper who has spent his career helping small producers in Peru. As president of the Lima Coffees exporting organization, Rony has already established himself as standing at the fore of microlot-quality coffees in Cajamarca. His first year with Lima Coffees, he entered the national competition and won; with the introduction of the Cup of Excellence competition to Peru in 2017, the country is poised to enter the international spotlight for its finest offerings. For this decaf lot, coffee is was collected from the 400 producers who are members of Lima Coffee.
 
FLAVOUR:
Decaf gets a bad rap because historically it was never well-grown green and typically is roasted too hot and too fast. However, if you start with great coffee and roast it with the decaf processing in mind, you experience the unique joy of origin. Thanks to Lima and the Mountain Water Processing, all those unique flavours of Cajamarca shine bright! In the cup you find a complex mix of sticky black cherry and creamy milk chocolate with a big body and lush honey finish.
