The Assembly Decaf is produced in Huila region, southern Colombia by farmers and producers from Raw Material's El Carmen project. The decaffeination plant for this coffee is located in Manizales - a city situated in the mountainous coffee-growing region of western Colombia.
A sugar cane decaffeination process is used to strip the coffee of its caffeine content. This process utilises naturally derived ethyl acetate (a byproduct from refining sugar cane), diluted with local spring water. This then attaches itself to substances of a particular molecular weight, including caffeine, to decaffeinate the coffee without hindering its natural complexities and flavour compounds.
Coffees are whole bean as standard. If you'd like your coffee ground please specify for which brewing style in the notes at checkout and we'll grind fresh.
