Take advantage of a great program dedicated to bringing the highest quality, naturally processed decaf to market! Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. By doing this, we are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (Ethyl Acetate, a natural solvent derived from fermented sugar or molasses products) processed products available.

This particular lot is chosen from among lots brought by four growers in the municipality of Caldono, which is in the department of Cauca. They are located in the villages of Potrerito, Cerro Alto, Santa Rosa, and El Gaucio. The coffee is picked and depulped the same day, then generally fermented dry for 16–28 hours, washed three to four times, and dried in parabolic dryers before being taken for E.A. decaffeination in-country.
