Coffee with a focus on cup consistency
Named for Colombia's national tree, Palmera is produced on farms in the Huila region. One cup in the morning simply will not do. You will crave more of this rich, Colombian flavor long after the last drop 🇨🇴
This coffee comes from well-established, generational farms in the Huila region of Colombia. Huila's Coffee farms are predominantly smallholder owned and over the past 10 years have made concerted efforts to produce specialty coffee that reveals the full character of the region's terroir.
About the Process
Palmera decaf begins with Colombia Palmera Supremo beans. From there it is sent to Descafecol SA, in the town of Palmira, Valle de Cauca, using the Ethyl Acetate (EA) process. Derived from locally grown sugarcane, the Ethyl Acetate acts as a natural solvent gently extracting caffeine from the coffee beans, avioding the use of excessive heat, to remove more than 97% of caffeine.
This process is FDA approved and the ethyl acetate produced by Sucroal is verified food grade, kosher, and halal.
Huila's department coffee committee, the local connection to the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation, has invested notable resources into training producers in everything from fertilization to roasting. Palmera represents the hard work of many farmers and producing communities, and this, combined with producer enthusiasm, has created a regional culture of quality-focused production.
