A delicious cup of decaf coffee is a beautiful thing. This special lot was harvested by the Urcunina group in Nariño, Colombia and decaffeinated at the first and only decaffeination plant in Colombia, which uses sugarcane for the process. The result is one of the sweetest and most complex cups of coffee we’ve ever tasted, with notes of maple syrup and green grape and a silky body.

We were first introduced to farmers in Nariño in 2012 through the Borderlands project initiated by Catholic Relief Services. In our first tastings of different coffees from the region, it was coffee from farms in La Florida that attracted our attention. The producers of these coffee went on to found the ASPROCAES association, which today counts 134 members. Counter Culture has purchased coffees from the association since 2012 and recently funded a Seeds grant to establish a community nursery of coffee and shade trees.

Urcunina is the name Quillasingas Indians gave to what is also known as the Galeras volcano, a prominent landmark in La Florida. The word translates to "Montaña de Fuego'' or “fire mountain.” The farmers in ASPROCAES chose Urcunina as a brand for their coffee in order to distinguish it from other coffees in the region.

This coffee was decaffeinated at DESCAFECOL, the first and only decaffeination plant in Colombia. DESCAFECOL uses ethyl acetate, a derivative of sugarcane, during the decaffeination process. It results in a delightfully sweet coffee, perhaps owing, in part, to the sugar used during the process. Decaf coffee drinkers are the true coffee lovers––here for the flavor, not for the kick––and we hope you enjoy it.
