We are delighted to share a fresh crop from Raw Material’s Red association program, from the Red Pitalito Association – located in the Huila region of Colombia. Decaffeinated by supercritical CO2 for all day drinking, this coffee is sweet, fresh and robust enough to brew as filter or espresso.

By paying a fixed price significantly higher than commodity coffee costs, the Red Association is able to raise quality standards of the coffee in the area through infrastructure improvements, and in turn the income of the farmers who join the program.

These small changes, some at the farm level and many at the level of processing and drying the coffee allows the quality of the coffee to rise several points on the grading scale and attain the premiums attached to specialty coffee. We found the coffee produced by the Pitalito association to be an excellent candidate for our next decaf, and we are very happy to showcase the work being done by our friends in Colombia

 


BREWING GUIDE

 

Typically we like to start with an 18g dose when dialing in our espresso. If you’re aiming for a 2:1 extraction, then a target weight of 36g is ideally pulled over 30 seconds. This decaf is particularly versatile and can stand up to brewing in a French Press for a filter style brew. A good starting point for the French Press is 60g of coffee to a litre of water, steep for 4 minutes, then leave for a further 4 minutes before pouring. Happy brewing!!
