Colombia Valle Del Cauca Sugarcane Decaf | Wholesale
A sugarcane decaf and Swiss Water decaf are very different coffees. Note that this is a sugarcane decaf and I think I'll do my best to keep one in stock. As I state below, this is not as complete of a process as SWP. Where SWP removes 99.9% of the caffeine, this process only removes 98-99%. But what it leaves in caffeine, it also leaves in flavor and hey, what is 1-2% between friends?
On to the tasting notes. This 2020 crop is very similar to last year, which is great! I love the cherry notes in this coffee, mixed with the caramel sweetness and the juicy mouthfeel. It is sweet like I'd hope a good sugarcane process coffee would be, and the hazelnut finish adds a mellow creaminess to the cup. I love this coffee and wish I could drink it in the mornings. However, I still have that caffeine addiction, so this one stands as my evening nightcap.

About Sugarcane Decaf:
Sugarcane is fermented and converted to EA (Ethyl Acetate), which is a naturally occurring compound and solvent that derives from the fermentation of the sugarcane.
When the coffee first arrives at the Decaf plant it is placed in big silos that give off a light steam. This is to open the pores of the beans to allow for easy extraction of the caffeine. It's also to remove the silver skin from the bean which can hinder the decaf process.
The green beans are then submerged into a tank filled with water and EA to begin the Decaf process. The EA naturally bonds with the compounds of the coffee, allowing for the decaffeination to occur.
The process takes about 24 hours and removes about 98-99% of the caffeine. The extracted caffeine is sold to energy drink companies or soda companies. The silver skin from the green bean that was removed is also used and sold as a fertilizer...a darn good fertilizer, too!
As a wholesale customer, you are ordering substantially more than the average coffee lover. This means that ensuring the correct grind level is even more important for you, but there's no need to worry. We're here to help! In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 4 different coffee grind levels. Listed below with descriptions.
Whole Bean: Unground coffee for a home grinder.
Coarse: Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse
Recommended for Chemex Brewer, French Press, Cold Brew
Medium: Slightly coarser than table salt
Recommended for Flat bottom brewers, Kalitta, and Cloth filters
Fine: Slightly finer than table salt
Recommended for V60 pour overs, Typical cone filter coffee pots, Aeropress.
Extra Fine: Like powdered sugar
Recommended for Espresso or Moka pot.
If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.
We roast and ship all of our coffees daily. Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal. We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it. We then ship it that day.
We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.
Due to the hefty batch size of the majority of wholesale orders will be shipped out within 48 hours of when your order was placed. We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments, and we will notify you if anything related to this policy will be changed.
We aim to have a super simple shipping policy. Everything is shipped ground, because frankly Priority or FedEx 2 Day is pretty expensive for heavier shipments and in an ever cost conscious environment, we want you to pay ofr the quality of beans vs. the speed of shipping. That said, we have good negotiated rates and will quote and shipping service you want. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
