Our latest decaf is from Peru.
Pomahuaca is a blend from producers in San Ignacio and Jaen provinces. 31 different producers contributed coffee, and each lot was delivered indivually to the Falcon warehouse in Jaen.
Producers in San Ignacio and Jaen provinces on average have 1 hectare of land planted with coffee, and the main varieties grown are Caturra and Typica.
Since producers own relatively small amounts of land, they generally manage the farm and do the picking and processing themselves, drying the coffee on plastic lined patios at their houses.
The decaffeination process:
There are several benefits to using this process for decaffenation.
•The agent used for extracting the caffeine is entirely natural and the process can be classified as ‘organic’ due to the complete lack of chemicals used throughout. There is also no health risk by consuming coffee that has been decaffeinated in this way.• The way the process works means the other compounds in the green bean are left untouched, meaning decaffeination has no effect on the flavour and aroma of the finished product. The carbon dioxide is very selective and doesn’t extract the carbohydrates and proteins in the green bean which contribute to flavour and smell.• The cell structure of the green bean and the finished roasted bean is unchanged which is of great advantage when working with speciality coffees.• The by-products are 100% natural and recyclable.
