This lot is from the small growers in the Jalapa region who are fairly new to coffee growing. They previously excelled at growing Corn, Tomatoes, Apples, Peaches & Avocados - and now Coffee!
The coffee is grown at around 1700 - 1900 m.a.s.l on the rich soils that lend themselves perfectly to coffee growing. Currently the coffee is processed at the mill at Finca El Hato (which some of you will recognise). There are plans to build a wet mill soon, which will improve the coffee offering further.
This Jalapa lot is bright, sweet and rich. There is a sweet caramel & silky mouthfeel which makes this an extremely easy drinker. Top grade decaf.

Very gentle decaffeination with natural carbon dioxide: In 1988 CR3 developed a patented decaffeination process using natural carbon dioxide under subcritical conditions (i.e. relatively low temperature and pressure). This particularly gentle process and the good caffeine selectivity of liquid CO2 guarantee a high retention of aroma and taste components. The process is all--‐natural and certified organic.
