    Popayan is our new decaf espresso.

    Popayan is our new decaf espresso.

    Replacing the hugely popular La Plata, this is another washed Colombian from the exact same region and has also been decaffeinated with the Sugar Cane Process. While La Plata had a heavy Muscavado like body, Popayan has a slightly more balanced profile, with less emphasis on just body and more of an even balance across body and sweetness. Expect a rich, but very sweet tasting decaf with a smooth cashew like mouthfeel.

    Region: Popyan, Cauca, Colombia

    Elevation: 1500-2070 MASL

    Brewing Options: Espresso, Cafetiere, Stove Top (Moka Pot), Aeropress and Drip Machine (Moccamaster, Wilfa Classic etc).

    • Description
      Popayan is our new decaf espresso, but does not veer far from our hugely popular La Plata that so many of our customers have grown to love over the last 18 months.

      It is still a washed Colombian from the exact same region and has also been decaffeinated with the Sugar Cane Process. While La Plata had a heavy Muscavado like body, Popayan has a slightly more balanced profile, with less emphasis on just body and more of an even balance across body and sweetness. Expect a rich, but very sweet tasting decaf with a smooth cashew like mouthfeel.

      Tasting notes:

      BROWN SUGAR / CASHEW / TANGERINE

      How you can brew this coffee:
      Espresso, Cafetiere, Stove Top (Moka Pot), Aeropress and Drip Machine (Moccamaster, Wilfa Classic etc).


      About the region / farms / producer:

      Popayan is located in the South West of Colombia, and is the capital of the wider Cauca department. It sits between the Western and the Central Mountain Range. This coffee is grown across various farms across the Popayan region of Colombia, before being transported to Caldas in Paisa to be decaffeinated. Decaffeinating the coffee in Colombia means that more of the profits stay in the country of origin, while also reducing the extra costs and food miles that incur when coffee is shipped to decaffeination plants in countries such as Mexico, Canada or Germany.

      ------

      The process of EA Deaf:

      Our Colombian E.A. (ethyl acetate) decafs are cupped as regular green samples and specifically identified for decaffeination, which happens in-country in Colombia before the coffee goes to export. This allows us to maintain both the integrity of the quality of the coffees we choose to decaf, but also to extend our intentional and responsible sourcing to our decaf offerings as well as our “regular.”

      This process works by soaking green coffee in a bath of water and a solvent called ethyl acetate, which is naturally derived from fermented sugar, among other natural sources. The solvent bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid within the coffee, which allows for the extraction of caffeine. The coffee is removed from its bath and steamed at low pressure to ensure no traces of E.A. are left, and the finished product is almost entirely free of any but the most trivial (0.1–0.3%) caffeine content.
      -------

      We roast on Tue, Wed & Thurs. Your coffee will be roasted within 5-10 days of purchase, with a shelf life of 6 weeks (optimum serving point of 10-36 days).
