Colombia El Yalcon Decaf Coffee

This coffee is from 23 smallholder farms of approximately five hectares each, in the La Plata area of Huila, Colombia. Ozone have signed a two-year purchasing contract with these farmers, strengthening their relationship and providing long-term security for growers. They asked the farmers what they thought they should call this coffee and El Yalcon was suggested as it is the indigenous name of the La Plata area.

El Yalcon has been decaffeinated using the natural ‘Sugar Cane process’. This involves the coffee being immersed in water with a natural solvent that is found in sugar cane which extracts caffeine from green coffee. The whole decaffeination is processed at the Descafecol plant in Manizales, Colombia, ensuring the coffee doesn’t need to travel further than necessary.

They are also buying coffee shop branded coffee to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience.""Despite the fact that many consumers are facing economic uncertainty, premium and branded coffees have an opportunity to market themselves as affordable luxuries. The purse strings may need to tighten but a premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than drinks from a coffee shop. Consumers are discovering it is safer and more cost-effective to have their own coffee at home and this trend is likely to continue even once the virus is under relative control...This shift opens up a real opportunity for coffee and the products that will support them in recreating that experience at home."For more: Comunicaffe International
