Colombia / Planadas / Decaf

from 16.00

:: Description ::
This decaf comes from the Planadas area of the department Tolima in Colombia. The lot is a collaborative effort of multiple producers in Planadas that make up the association Agprocem. Agprocem has 61 families comprising the association and between them the families produce Caturra, Castillo and Typica varieties mainly. The altitude of the family farms are between 1700m - 2000m. The coffees from each farm collaborating on this lot were all processed using the washed method then sun-dried before being sent for decaffeination.

For many years, Colombia was the number-one world producer of washed coffees, and the second-largest producer to Brazil. In 2000, Colombia was surpassed by Vietnam, and then the rust infestation of 2008 set them back significantly. Today they are currently in the top five of coffee production with roughly 10 million bags per year. Colombians farmers and citizens alike drink a lot of coffee every day; nearly 20% of their annual production.
