Farm Story

 

This particular lot is the work of a number of smallholder growers from the town of Pitalito within the department of Huila. As with all specialty coffee the cherry is picked and meticulously sorted before depulping and undergoing a classic washed process. As part of a program initiated by Cafe Imports the next step in deca einating is breaking from industry norms (and unnecessary food-miles) in being decaf processed in-country before export. Using local natural sugar cane to create Ethyl Acetate, the coffee is soaked in a E.A solution to remove caffeine.

Colombia has over 600,000 farms, most of them farmed by small landholders with less than 5 acres nestled in the hills at roughly 1,200 to 2,000 meters above sea level. Colombian farmers and citizens alike drink a lot of coffee every day; nearly 20% of their annual production.
