Story

Fazenda Vila Boa encompasses over 1,000 hectares and produces both coffee and cattle for dairy production. To help tackle the increasing threats from climate change, Fazenda Vila Boa has recently taken steps to become certified as carbon neutral. This means that the estate is not only reducing their carbon footprint but can also offset the carbon that they do produce, thanks to their coffee terroirs and forests. 

30% of the farm remains under protection for conservation, with the team also planning to increase this number by planting more than 1000 trees. Fazenda Vila Boa also looks to create a positive impact on the local community: sponsoring the NGO ICAFE, where women are taught to make and sell food, and children from nearby communities are encouraged to take part in further educational and cultural activities.

The decaf portion of this blend undergoes a washed process prior to decaffeination, which is solvent base, using ethyl-acetate. It is derived from a mix of acetic acid (vinegar) and a natural extract distilled from sugar cane, blackberries, beets, or sometimes grapes.

A direct-solvent process is used meaning that the beans are steamed to open their pores and are then rinsed in ethyl acetate repeatedly to remove the caffeine. Next, the beans are dried but not completely, 10-12% humidity remains, and then the open bean is sealed with natural wax that in no way affects the flavor, fragrance or aroma of the coffee.
