STORYarticle-shape

Decaf Colombia Huila EA delivers a delightful decaffeinated coffee experience with its harmonious blend of stone fruit, semi-sweet chocolate morsels, and malt flavors. Savoring this unique and delicious combination is always a pleasure for coffee enthusiasts.

Located in southwestern Colombia, Huila is nestled in-between the Central and Eastern ranges of the Andes, with the middle area called the Magdalena Valley. The variation in elevation results in Huila being one of the country's most unique and complex regions of coffee production. Its terroir, climate, and harvest cycles all contribute to the quality of coffee produced here. The most impressive quality behind the coffees coming out of Huila lies in the people producing them. While Huila accounts for nearly 20% of the country's production, 80% of coffee producers operate on less than three hectares.

Decaf EA Ethyl acetate is an occurring ester (present in bananas and also as a by-product of fermented sugars) that is used as a solvent to bond with and remove caffeine from green coffee. First, the coffee is sorted and steamed for 30 minutes under low pressure in order to open the coffee seeds’ pores and prepare them for decaffeination. The coffee is placed in a solution of both water and ethyl acetate, where the E.A. will begin to bond with the salts of chlorogenic acids inside the seeds. The tank will be drained and re-filled over the course of eight hours until caffeine is no longer detected. The seeds are steamed once more to remove the ethyl acetate traces, though E.A. is only harmful to humans in very high quantities (400 parts per million or more). The coffee is then dried and polished for export. Washed Colombia is best-known for its Washed coffees. While the processing details might vary slightly from farm to farm or by association, generally the coffee is picked ripe and depulped the same day, then given an open-air fermentation in tanks or buckets for anywhere between 12–36 hours. The coffee is washed clean of its mucilage before being dried either on patios, in parabolic dryers, solar dryers, or mechanically. Some Washed coffees in Colombia are mechanically demucilaged.

Klatch Coffee is a woman-owned, family-operated coffee company based in Southern California and distributed worldwide. We source, roast, and brew our own coffee, and apply our scientific method to accomplish a taste best described with expletives and exclamations. Some say it’s obsessive, we say it’s fun. Our methodical approach is a mix of coffee artistry and mad science — obsessively meticulous and thoroughly documented over many tastings to get it just right. We call it our “peak of flavor method,” and it’s earned us a spot on the world coffee stage for three decades and counting. Here at Klatch, we spend a lot of energy searching for and studying about the best coffee we can offer. We value people and planet before profit, and at Klatch Coffee, the conversation around coffee never stops. Our Klatch Direct Trade Coffee journey begins with a partnership with like-minded producers - those who share our same commitment to ethics, excellence, environmental stewardship, quality, and community. We follow a Direct Trade Coffee model that is designed to meet the needs of the families in today’s market, and buy straight from the growers, cutting out the traditional middleman. In doing so, we're able to pay well above Fair-Trade minimums - by at least 25% - and often pay double or triple those prices based on the cup quality. Our buying model is designed to push the envelope of quality coffee by encouraging viable, meaningful careers in specialty coffee agriculture. We only buy Cup of Excellence quality coffee and above, often 90 points or more, and we believe that a farmer that grows such award-winning coffee should be given their due. Through our Klatch Direct Trade model, we have not only simplified the supply chain, but we've also improved the quality and sustainability for farmers and have built long-term relationships with producers in various countries.
