A downbeat in music is something dancers feel with their whole being. It's the heartbeat, soul, and beginning of every movement. I'm not quite sure we would know how to dance without this important element.
Much like the downbeat in music, Colombian coffee is an extreme shaper in the caffeinated world and this Palmera puts up a good fight with its decaffeinated version. Colombia boasts hundreds of microclimates from its Caribbean coast in the north to its equatorial highlands in the south, and this Palmera represents a classic fully washed profile, with balanced notes of citrus, cinnamon, and caramel. Full body and medium acidity are characteristic of clean Colombian coffees.
Palmera is sourced and processed by Aromas del Sur in Pitalito, Huila, where their state of the art dry mill sorts, cleans, and selects coffee prior to preparing it for shipment. This beautiful coffee represents the hard work of many farmers and supports many communities of producers.
Palmera Decaf is decaffeinated by the local company Descafecol SA, in the town of Palmira, Valle de Cauca, using the Ethyl Acetate (EA) process.
