Nariño is a southwestern department of Colombia bordered by Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. The volcanic soil from the Andes gives this region a strong agricultural sector. The Andean highlands have ideal coffee growing condition, whereas the Pacific lowlands' main crop is banana.
This coffee is sourced from various farms in the Nariño department of southwestern Colombia through the FUDAM cooperative. Founded in 1999, the coop started with only 7 farmers, and is today made up of 300 member producers. They focus their efforts on projects that seek to better their local communities through agro-ecology, food safety, and environmental sustainability.
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 mango, ganache & cola notes to this coffee.
