DECAF’S HIDDEN POTENTIAL
We didn’t believe much in the potential of decaf coffee. They always seemed unpalatable to us, with notes of rancid nutella (that nutiness!), and a strange aftertaste.
However, with people in our closest family and friends who can’t consume caffeine because of health conditions, we decided to go on a decaf mission and we’ve selected The Ultimate Player One – and it comes from a single plantation.
AFTER THIS DECAF YOU CAN STILL SLEEP SAFE & SOUND
With our decaf coffee, you can drink a doppio at 11pm and still sleep safe & sound, and a latte crave at 2am won’t be a problem anymore.
Our decaf is only decaf because it has no caffeine – 95% didn’t recognize the fact that this coffee is decaf, and were surprised when we told them after blind tasting several other single origins on the table.
It’s suitable for both drip and espresso – we roasted it omniroast.
YAMON THE STORY
The Asociación de Productores Cafetaleros Juan Marco “El Palto” – in short, JUMARP – was founded by José Carranza Barboza in 2003, together with 35 other smallholder farmers. They created the association out of a desire to develop
a new model of growing and exporting coffee.
In 2012, JUMARP launched an ambitious program for quality improvement.
They collected funds from premiums, from government funding and contribution of the members themselves.
Coffee production in the Amazonian Andes of northern Peru, where JUMARP is active, started in the 1950s. Farming practices relied heavily on the use of agro-chemicals for a long time. After many decades, this group decided to change the old ways and start sustainable coffee production in harmony with the native forest. They also realised that united they would stand stronger in the commercialisation of their coffee.
Altogether, the 188 producers grow coffee on 549 hectares in the “Selva Alta” in northern Peru. This is a specific type of ecosystem found in Peru and Mexico, with dense and humid forests. JUMARP unites farmers in the El Palto area of the Yamón district, located in the Utcubamba province of the Amazonas region in northern Peru
INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY AS A PRIORITY
One of the priorities as been increasing productivity.
To achieve this, JUMARP invests half of the premium they receive in crop renovation and conversionto organic farming methods.
The fund for education and the construction of schools receive another large chunk of the premium. The remaining part goes into the payment of the association’s permanent staff.
In our decaf coffee you will sense wonderful notes of GLAZED CHERRY, CHOCOLATE WITH RAISINS and HAZELNUTS that we fell in love with from the first sip. Very LOW ACIDITY, moderate body and SWEETNESS that is complimentary, just like a GLAZED CHERRY TO THE CHOCOLATE CAKE.
