DECAF Colombia, Sugar Cane Process
We believe that decaf coffee should taste amazing.
This decaf coffee was sourced specifically by Swing’s buyers and our partners at Campesino Coffee. Drawn from three family farms, these lots are high-grown hard beans. The decaffeination plant uses a patented method of extracting ethanol from sugar cane, which grows in abundance in the area. This method is 100% chemical free, leaving you only the true flavor of the coffee: big milk chocolate notes with cane sugar and light citrus.
Selecting beans for decaf from people and farms we know, further ensures that this coffee is traceable and transparent. From our friends at Villa Bernarda, Los Abuelos and El Mirador, to our decaf partner Sven Dabelstien at DescafeCol in Manizales, to our export friends and partners at Campesino Specialty Coffee, to our importer at InterAmerican Coffee, we built the scope and scale of the supply chain with trusted actors. This decaf coffee fully complies with our Home Grown Buying Program.
That is all to say, that we are intent on finding the best lots we can to have them go through decaffeination. So often for those sourcing decaf, the level of quality is an after-thought, if one at all. Decaffeination is expensive, so in most cases, these folks are buying the lowest (cheapest) coffees available. But we believe decaf drinkers are true purists. Caffeine is not the goal, but the true flavor of coffee. And we think it should be the best.
