Decaf - Colombia - Racafe Crecer SWD

Chocolate, Prune, Praline

Racafe - one of Colombia’s leading exporters of specialty coffee - began life in Cundinamarca in 1929 when the Espinosa brothers started their first business initiative renting bicycles – by 1953 the attention had turned to coffee, and the company rapidly grew to have milling operations in 9 cities across Colombia. Today it remains a family business, albeit a substantial one – representing over 5,000 individual producers and 45 producer groups.

Crecer was introduced in 2020 as Racafe’s internal sustainability standard with the aim of conserving both biodiversity of the environment and the communities who live and cultivate coffee within those environments.

This coffee is picked and processed in the same manner as the full-caf offering, before being shipped to Vancouver for decaffeination at Swiss Water. There, the coffee is soaked in a proprietary Green Coffee Extract (GCE), that allows the caffeine to seep out without removing too much of the flavour. The caffeine is then removed and the beans returned to the GCE to reabsorb any flavours that previously escaped.

Best decaf in UK

Hands down the best decaf I've found in the UK. Tried loads of decaf beans from across the country over last few years and this actually tastes like proper espresso.
