Carbon negative coffee



Popayán is located in the Cauca department of Colombia, at an altitude of 1,700 meters above sea level. The Meseta de Popayán is sheltered by the Andes Mountains, which helps to create a uniform climate and altitude. This coffee is a mix of Castillo and Caturra varieties, which undergoes a typical washed process where cherries are floated and sorted before being pulped and washed to remove all the cherry and mucilage. Parchments of coffee are then placed on patios to dry over the course of 20+ days.

After this first washed process, the milled coffee is delivered to Descafecol in Manizales, where it is decaffeinated using the sugar cane process. The green coffee beans are put into a steam chamber where their silver skin is removed, then submerged in spring water. As soon as the coffee is saturated with water, it is sent to the extractors where the beans have direct contact with ethyl acetate – a natural byproduct created in the production of sugar cane refining – for eight hours, dissolving the caffeine content. After this, the then-decaffeinated coffee is dried in a chamber to reach the same moisture content which it had prior to the process.

The ethyl acetate can be reused a number of times before it is sent on for refinement, and the resulting caffeine is then dried and sold to other industries such as pharmaceuticals and energy drinks manufacturers.

We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.
