Decaf Ethiopia Moredocofe Organic
Moredocofe is a pair of farms and a washing station nestled on the rolling hillsides of Sidamo, the celebrated coffee growing region in Ethiopia. Established by Haile Gebre and his wife Dimbelal Endale, Moredocofe also works with over 300 small-holder farmers to produce exceptional quality and organic coffee, while maintaining the integrity of the surrounding ecosystem. Of the 500 hectares owned by Haile and his family, over 70 are untouched forest preserve.
Haile measures success by impacting the quality of life for the coffee producers of his community. Fellow producers have access to seedlings from his nursery free of charge, as well as training on proper agricultural practices and processing. A primary school he funded provides care and education to the children of the community, and a second school is scheduled to begin construction this year.
This coffee was decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Process of caffeine extraction, without the use of solvents. The coffee soaks in a ͞green coffee extract that coaxes the caffeine out of the beans. The extract then passes through activated carbon filters that remove the caffeine before being reintroduced to the beans. This process continues until the beans are 99.9% caffeine free.
