Coffee Story:

CENCOIC is the interface between coffee growers of the autonomous Nasa indigenous communities of Cauca and the modern global economy. One of their main purposes is to elevate the negotiating position of indigenous coffee farmers from fragmented smallholders with little bargaining power in commercial supply chains dominated by massive trading entities. Working in collaboration as a unified force, they are able to collectively channel a consolidated, desirable supply with a known commercial value to the market, standing toe to toe with powerful industry players in order to negotiate favorable conditions, resulting in higher prices for producers than those available on the commodity market. 

A cohesive group based on common spiritual and community values, they grow coffee in a way that respects the integrity of the land and their surroundings, according to their indigenous belief system. Thanks to the high level of confidence and trust among members and leaders of the group, they are also able to unify and implement cultivation and processing techniques with relative agility and ubiquity, allowing them to offer a product of consistent quality and low environmental impact. 

Colombia Las Montanas Natural Decaf is decaffeinated using Ethyl Acetate (EA). In this method the green beans are steamed or soaked to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The expanded beans are then soaked in EA, which bonds with the caffeine molecules and breaks them away from the bean. The decaffeinated coffee is then removed from the EA solvent and rinsed thoroughly. EA is a naturally occurring organic compound found in fruits and vegetables that is synthesized for coffee decaffeination 

Ideal Brewing Methods: Pour over (Chemex, Kalita, V60, etc.) 

Brewing Ratio: 1:15.5

tastes wonderful but doesn't get me as sweaty and buzzed as standard coffee

Half Caff with full flavor

I've been hooked on Red Bay's Slow Burn roast for over a year now and wasn't sure another roast—especially a half-caff one—could live up to the full-bodied flavor. Half Caff proved me wrong! It delivers a rich and complex pour and made notching down my caffeine intake easy and pleasurable. I'd LOVE to see this roast added to the monthly subscription options so I can keep it in regular rotation!

Steady as she goes

This is a rich, well balanced, full bodied blend. I've been drinking my coffee half caffeinated for many years, and was thrilled to see Red Bay offering a pre-mixed version of my daily grind. I like to be able to drink coffee all day long, without the roller coaster ride and sleepless nights, and this well crafted offering fits the bill perfectly.
