This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around Sociedad de Producción Rural Unión de Ejidos y Comunidades San Fernando, S.P.R. de R.I., an organization operating in the municipalities of San Fernando, Jaltenango de la Paz, Ocozocoautla, Villa Corzo, La Concordia, Siltepec, Angel Albino Corzo, Bella Vista, Chicomuselo, Montecristo, Amatenango and Tuxtla Gutiérrez within the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The Sociedad has invested in nurseries to support more than 1,300 farmers to renovate their coffee farms. The organization is also leading efforts to assist their members to make improvements to their houses, and diversification initiatives such as coffee shops, and training programs to use Vermicompost that uses earthworms to turn organic wastes into very high quality compost. About the process: During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again.
