Honduras, Maya Decaf
The decaf of your dreams…without interrupting them.
|Tasting Notes||Maple, Caramel, Sweet & Balanced|
|Processing||Mountain Water Processed (MWP)|
We’ve always joked that decaf only works when you throw it. Good decaf is hard to come by. Even harder is finding good water-processed organic decaf green (coffee beans ready for roast); however, we found a winner.
Decaffeinated by Mountain Water Processing, this coffee from Marcala, Honduras is free of all chemicals and solvents typically used in the decaffeination process. This single-origin roast is well balanced, clean and medium bodied, featuring sweet notes of maple and caramel.
Fair-Trade Certified, USDA Organic
In the year 2000, 62 Honduran coffee farmers joined together with a common goal to transform their farms from conventional to organic production and formed COMSA (Cafe Organico Marcala, S.A). In 2001, fostered by a foundation called Funder, COMSA earned their organic certification from Bio Latina which has enabled them to market their coffee to more international buyers and realize better selling prices for their coffee. In February 2006, COMSA then applied for and was granted Fair Trade certification status. COMSA uses the Fair Trade price premium to fund many social projects including paying teachers’ salaries and purchasing school supplies.
