Huila is a southwestern department of Colombia. It is the country's biggest coffee producer, even though it is mostly composed of small farms. The secret behind their productivity is that the farms all have their small micro beneficio, or processing station.
This coffee is sourced from various farmers in Huila. Over the past ten years, producers in the region have made concerted efforts to produce specialty coffee that reveals the full character of the region's terroir. Palmera represents the hard work of many farmers and producing communities, and this, combined with producer enthusiasm, has created a regional culture of quality-focused production.
The ethyl acetate decaffeination process uses fermented molasses from sugar cane as a solvent to release the caffeine from green coffee beans. This chemical-free process gives plum, marmalade & baking spice notes to this coffee.
