Pitalito, Huila, Colombia. Variety: Caturra, Castillo & Colombia. Process: Hand-harvested, depulped & dry fermented, fully washed & E. A. sugar cane decaffeinated. Altitude: 1,500 to 1,750 metres.
Grown along an isolated set of mountains stretching from Timana to Palestina in the southern part of Huila, this decaf is the work of 38 smallholder farmers, growing a mix of the typical Colombian varieties - Caturra, Castillo and Variedad Colombia. Each farmer is dedicated to producing quality outturns, which starts with harvesting ripe cherries from healthy, well-nourished trees. Selective picking requires multiple passes around the trees, as not every tree and cherry will ripen at a uniform rate. In processing their harvest the farmers first depulp and dry ferment for around 24 hours before washing, then drying under parabolic dryers or on raised beds. This attention to detail and quality coupled with the benefits brought about by the sugar cane decaffeination process results in a ripe, complete and intact flavour profile which we think makes for delicious drinking.
