Cerro Azul Decaf Ground Coffee
This coffee is decaffeinated using the chemical- free C02 process.
This process involves submerging the unroasted green coffee in warm pressurised water to open up the bean. Carbon molecules are then added to the water which attract and bind with the caffeine. The great thing about this is that it doesn’t draw out any of the carbohydrates and proteins which are what give the coffee its flavour. The water and carbon dioxide are then removed and the coffee dried. The by-products of this process are completely recycled, with the water filtered and reused while the filtered content is extracted and turned into cow feed.
Cerro Azul is steeped in coffee history. It has always been a coffee farm, but it was only after the Mierisch family purchased it in 2011, that its development and quality rapidly improved. They saw the great potential of Honduran coffee and wanted to share the knowledge that they had learned from their homeland Nicaragua, with another country.Tasting notes - Plum, Mandarin & Brown Sugar
