Meet Smallholder producers

Decaf coffees can be tricksy. Disappointing. But not this one. Square One’s latest decaf offering combines the coffee-growing efforts of 61 families from the Huila region of Colombia. Their farms range from between 1,200-2,000 meters above sea level (approximately 4,000-6,500 feet high), so the slower-ripening cherries carry just that much more flavor.

After these specialty beans were processed, Cafe Imports chose them to be part of their “Origin Select Decafs” project, designed to ensure a level of quality and traceability not usually found in decaf coffees. The coffee was then taken through a relatively new decaffeination process called Sugarcane EA. It not only repurposes a naturally occurring by-product of sugar fermentation, thereby conserving water, it leaves a hint of sugarcane sweetness and flavor behind that complements and enhances the coffees own flavor profile.

Huila, Colombia

In the southwest of Colombia, we find the Huila region, nestled on the flank of the Andes near the Nevado del Huila volcano, second highest peak in Colombia. Consistently garnering awards in Cup of Excellence competitions, coffees from this department (state) are full-bodied, with a syrupy texture, strong fruitiness, and medium to high acidity. San Agustin lies relatively close to the equator which means that coffee harvesting here happens almost year round.

Gods and mythical animals hang out in the mountains of Colombia, stone monuments to a civilization that faded circa 1320 A.D., was rediscovered in the 1800’s, and is now protected by the San Agustin Archaeological Park. The country is rich in all the elements that make it prime coffee-growing territory. Rich volcanic soils, lush climate, altitude all combine to make coffee from the Huila district what Cafe Imports calls “some of the most exquisite in Colombia.”
