Located in a biological Conservation Corridor, Valle del Cauca lies between the National Park of Tatama and “serrania de los paraguas”. Some years ago, this region was identified by Conservation International as one of the two main conservation corridors in Colombia. Farmers in this region are keenly aware of the importance of the preservation of natural resources, water management and friendly environmental practices.
Our Valle del Cauca Excelso was decaffeinated in Colombia using ethyl acetate – an organic compound derived from sugarcane – to remove 97% of the caffeine from coffee beans. The process tends to leave a pleasant sugary flavor.
