About Smallholder producers of Colombia

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.
