A smooth and sweet coffee, with notes of molasses and malt

This coffee is gently decaffeinated using the Swiss Water process. The green beans are soaked in warm water, allowing the caffeine to dissolve into the water. The water is then passed through charcoal filters to remove the caffeine molecules. After that, the decaf water is returned to the same beans for about 8 hours to continue removing any remaining caffeine. Throughout this process, the water is charged with the existing flavour compounds to prevent any loss of taste. This means that all of the unique flavors from the origin beans are retained in the decaf beans, ready to be dried and roasted.


The coffee producers

While women have always been crucial to coffee production in Peru, men traditionally held the economic power. In 2004, 464 female coffee producers in Peru united to change this dynamic and take a step toward empowerment. They decided to separate their coffee production from men to gain visibility and a voice inside their community. Working in partnership with OPTCO, they developed a never-before-existing market for women-produced coffee to serve as an important vehicle for social change and the empowerment of poor, marginalized women coffee farmers. Since then, the Café Femenino movement now includes thousands of women farmers from nine countries across the world.

Since their first meeting in 2004, the women of the Café Femenino Peru Program have marshaled widespread social change into their communities. By overcoming a variety of barriers— including inferior societal status due to gender prejudice, adverse living conditions, and lack of self-esteem stemming from insecurities about their lack of formal education—the women have successfully stood up against generations of gender inequity.
