Colombia Beanie Decaf Coffee

We believe that just because you choose to drink decaf doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on quality. Our decaffeinated coffee is roasted in a way that will be suitable for all brewing methods.

Risaralda is at the center of Colombia’s “Coffee Triangle”, surrounded by the renowned regions Tolima, Cauca, Quindio and Caladas. This area has the highest concentration of coffee farmers and is home to some of the country’s best beans. The region is aided by its altitude of 1,300 to 1,570 meters above sea level on the edge of the Andes, where the coffee grows in volcanic, nutrient rich soil. Additionally, the region receives ample rainfall and breezes from both the Pacific ocean and Caribbean sea, which create unique microclimates that make the coffee from this region so special and diverse.

The area has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site for being an exceptional example of a cultural, sustainable and productive landscape – a historical milestone for the country.

The coffee beans for this decaf first undergo steaming at low pressures to remove the silver skins. They are then soaked in hot water to allow the beans to swell and soften. This step prepares the coffee for hydrolysis, where the caffeine, which is attached to the salts of the chlorogenic acid within the beans, dissolves. Finally the coffee is submerged several times in ethyl acetate solvent (EA). In the case of sugarcane decaf, the ethyl acetate is naturally obtained from the fermentation of sugarcane grown in Colombia and not from chemical synthesis. Once the caffeine is reduced to the desired level, the beans are cleaned to remove the remaining EA and dried to between 10–12%.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
