Farmers in Valle del Cauca are strongly aware of the importance of the preservation of natural resources, water management and friendly environmental practices. The region was once a prominent producer of coffee, but much of the land is now dedicated to producing sugar cane.
About the Sugarcane Process
This coffee was decaffeinated using the Sugarcane Process. The process uses ethyl acetate – an organic compound found in sugar cane – to remove 97% of the caffeine from coffee beans. The process tends to leave a pleasant, sweet flavor.
