Colombia Monte Bonito Decaf Coffee
Monte Bonito was decaffeinated using the Carbonated Water method. Just like other decaffeination processes such as the Swiss Water or CO2 method, the unroasted coffee is submerged in warm water, where it expands. The water is then carbonated, allowing it to attach to the caffeine molecules so it can be removed before the coffee is dried. After processing, the coffee becomes rounder in flavour, softer in acidity, and creamier.

We like this method because it is zero waste. The caffeine is used for carbonated drinks, the water is filtered the remains are used as part of cow feed and the water is used in future batches.

This lot is like so many great Colombian coffees, composed of coffee grown on small family farms that are usually only a couple of hectares big. Although made up of coffee from different producers, the farms share many of the same growing conditions, from soil to cultivars to climate and plant care. This means that the coffees have an incredibly similar taste experience, giving them an incredibly clear flavour profile when blended together.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
