Fine coffee Colombia VILLAMARIA - decaffeinated from the Italian roaster Gardelli Coffee is characterized by tones of brown sugar, honey, guava and cocoa .
Villamarìa is a station in Chinchinà, a municipality located in the department of Caldas in Colombia. Chinchiná is a rich beautiful landscape and is surrounded by coffee plantations in central Cordillera, with an active volcano. The station currently represents a harvest of 30 coffee-producing families in nearby Villaraz, Jamaica. This coffee is decaffeinated by the sugar cane process. Water from Nevado del Ruiz (a volcano between Caldas and Tolima) and natural ethyl acetate from fermented sugar cane from the southern region of Palmira in Colombia are used for this process. The process begins by steaming coffee. The beads are immersed in ethyl acetate solvent until 97% of the caffeine is removed. The final steam is then used to lift residual traces of organic compound.
