The Country
Peru is located in northwestern South America, right along the Pacific coast. The country is divided into three regions: costa (along the Pacific coast), sierra (the Andes Mountains), and Amazonia (the eastern portion of the country, the source of the Amazon River). These vastly different regions of the country make it difficult to travel from one region to another, but they also allow for a variety of crops, including coffee, which came to the area in the 1700s.

The Process
Our chemical-free decaf comes from a wide array of origins, all going through the same decaffeinating process. It works through diffusion and not osmosis, utilizing elements of water, temperature, and time, maintaining as many original notes from the coffee as possible and making the most intriguing decaf coffees.

 

POD FACTS

  • The pods have a a filter that is 10 times stronger than the filters in standard pods, which allows for finer grinds and more extraction of flavor.
  • The pods are designed to hold up to 40% more coffee than standard pods; the larger fill capacity means richer brews.
  • The degassing seal in each pod allows for same day roast, grind, and fill freshness. You won't find a fresher pod!
