Featuring 50% Rio Brilhante: an amazing natural processed Brazilian coffee from the Cerrado region, and our Colombian Tres Pioneros Decaf grown in Huila. Joined together in perfect harmony, creating a balanced blend, rich in flavour and with a smooth body.

Great for espresso-based drinks as well as filter, expect notes of cacao, delicately spiced cinnamon, and sweet candied orange.

A perfect blend for the times when you still want a little caffeine, but not the full hit, all without sacrificing flavor.
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Story

Inácio first arrived in Minas Gerais, Brazil in 1976 with the dream of producing great coffee via sustainable and innovative practices. After acquiring his own farm in Cerrado Mineiro in 1984, Rio Brilhante has grown to become one of the biggest farms in the region, as well as one of the largest in the country; spanning over 2000 hectares. Since Inácio planted those first trees over 30 years ago, he has continued to strive for excellence within the speciality industry, mainly via his use of rigorous quality control methods.

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.
