Our decaffeinated coffees are selected because they are suited to a zero waste, all-natural processing method. Unroasted coffee is soaked in warm water before carbon molecules are pumped into the batch, which binds them with the caffeine. The caffeine and C02 are then removed when the coffee is dried. The water is drained and filtered for reuse and the coffee strains are recycled for cow feed.

The Mierisch family are one of the most well-known and respected coffee producing families in Nicaragua. Every year we travel to visit them in the north of the country near a town called Matagalpa. This year we wanted to find a coffee that would stand up to the decaffeination process whilst expressing vibrant and interesting flavours. This coffee was on the third cupping table of the day and was just what we were looking for. A round, sweet and clean coffee that tastes delicious as an espresso or with milk.
