The coffee origins
We are pretty excited about the fact that our decaf is the exact same coffee as our Primavera Family, but decaffeinated! How cool is that… The coffee underwent the organic CO2 processing method which uses liquid CO2 to draw the caffeine out of the green coffee.
The Primavera Family lot is created by combining coffee from 10 great producers from around Huehuetenango. The coffees all scored 84 and 85 points making them great but not quite ready to stand alone as single origins. Primavera bought the coffees to create this delicious lot. The higher price the farmers received will help them invest in their farms and wet mills. Perhaps next year we will buy some of their individual Micro Lots!
