Origin Story

Smallholder farmers

This coffee comes from smallholder farmers organized by Café Ventura that are located in the region of Ocotepeque, at the western corner of Honduras. Café Ventura is owned and operated by lurvin Ventura and his family, who have been involved in coffee production since the 1970s.

This coffee was decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process of caffeine extraction, without the use of chemical solvents. The coffee soaks in a water-saturated green coffee extract that contains soluble coffee components just under equilibrium with that of the coffee beans, so soluble coffee components such as caffeine, only flow out of the beans and into the extract. The caffeine laden extract then passes through activated carbon filters that catch the caffeine molecules and the process is repeated until the beans are 99.9% caffeine free.

Why We Love This Coffee

Often times, decaffeinated coffees lose some of their inherent flavor and take on flavors caused by the decaffeination process, this coffee however, retained much of its flavor and acidity.
