Cooperative Cocla is made up of 21 coffee farmers located 5 hours from the city of Cusco, the natural and cultural region of the Inca empire. Our direct-trade import partner, Freeman Trading, sends these beans to a facility in Germany to undergo the CO2 decaffeination process.

The process takes advantage of the fact that carbon dioxide, when compressed, behaves partly like a gas and partly like a liquid, and has the property of combining selectively with caffeine. In the most widely used CO2 process the steamed beans are bathed in the compressed carbon dioxide and the caffeine is removed from the carbon dioxide through charcoal filtering, just as it is in the water-only process. However, the flavour components remain in the bean throughout the process, rather than being soaked out and then put back in again, as they are in both the Swiss Water and the indirect solvent processes. With the bitter tasting caffeine removed, the coffee is perceived to be sweeter tasting than before the process.

Really good decaf

Tried the coffee for the first time recently and it is really good. Sometimes decaf can be the poor cousin for roasters but it’s clear that a lot of care and attention has gone into this blend. I will definitely be setting up a subscription so I don’t run out.
