Colombia Villamaria Natural Decaf (Espresso)
Villamaría is a Colombian municipality located in the department of Caldas. The region is fed by numerous sources of water and natural resources. Villamaría is located a few kilometers from the city of Manizales, whose urban areas are surrounded by the Chinchiná River.
Villamaría also lends its name to our drying station in Chinchiná, Caldas. The station currently represents the harvests of 30 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Jamaica in the area of Villarazo, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself. As Villamaría sits at a lower altitude, it is better suited to the processing of honey and natural coffees due to the hotter temperatures found here.
This natural process micro-lot is decaffeinated in Manizales at the sugarcane decaf processing plant there. The quality of the initial coffee, the quality of decaf produced at the plant, and the fact that Manizales is only around one hour away from Villamaria all contribute to the outstanding quality of this decaf.
This is a delicious, complex coffee with intense strawberry flavours and a heavy body.
