Montebonito Decaf Filter Roast
FUDGE – HONEY – PEACH
This decaf comes from the Caldas department of Colombia. It is grown by a group of smallholder farmers living around the municipality of Montebonito.
Most of the coffee growers from this region, are very small with only between 1 – 3 hectares of land and manage the farm themselves. During the harvest, the coffee is picked with the help of neighbours, processed and dried within the farm. After this, the coffee will then be delivered to the Manizales Cooperative collection point in the town. Here it is assessed and separated according to quality where the producers receive extra payment for good quality.
The sugar cane decaffeination used for this coffee takes place at the origin using fermented sugar cane molasses as the base product of the process. This is well suited for Colombia where sugar cane is widely grown.
At Alchemy we put as much effort into finding the right decaf as we do with the rest of our range. As coffee that has gone through this process tends to age quicker, we make an effort to buy only lots that have very recently landed in UK.
To us, tasting the true flavours found in the coffee, not clouded by the processing, is the key – so we’ve designed our roasting style of these coffees with that in mind.
This coffee works equally well as filter and espresso, with milk or without.
Expect a sweet full bodied cup with a subtle underlying fruitiness that is expected from a great Colombian coffee.
