We have taken advantage of a great program dedicated to bringing the highest quality, naturally processed decaf to market! Origin Select Decafs are sourced green by Café Imports prior to decaffeination, breaking from the industry norm. By doing this, we are able to provide the highest quality water and E.A. (Ethyl Acetate, a natural solvent derived from fermented sugar or molasses products) processed products available. This particular lot is chosen from among lots brought by 11 smallholder growers in the department of Nariño.

These producers achieve good quality by picking ripe cherries (when they are a deep purple color), depulping them the same day they're picked, and allowing them to ferment in tanks for 17–18 hours before washing. They are dried in parabolic dryers for 15–20 days depending on the weather.
