Roast Style: Decaffeinated

Natural Liquid Carbon Dioxide Coffee
Decaffeination Process

This sophisticated decaffeination method ensures that the unique flavour notes - influenced by terroir and processing - are kept intact as far as possible.

The process: moistened green, unroasted coffee is saturated with pressurised, liquid carbon dioxide which draws out the caffeine. Thereafter, an evaporator is used to separate caffeine from the CO2, which can then be recycled for following decaffeination cycles. Once the desired caffeine level is attained (0.08% or less), the circulation of CO2 stops, leading to the drying of the coffee and, at last, it is ready for roasting.

Roaster's Notes

Shakisso Farm, found in Guji, Oromia, has a rich legacy. The farm is renowned for producing coffees that capture the timeless and distinctive Ethiopian profiles we love – pronounced citrus, florals, and luscious stone fruits.

Roasting decaffeinated coffees demands a little extra- careful handling to avoid scorching. It would be shame to squander the painstaking effort invested in creating a decaf coffee with such a strong connection to its origin!

Haile Gebre was forced to flee from his home in Yirgacheffe at 10 years old due to land claims for coffee production expansion. In spite of his discouraging introduction to the coffee sector, today he is affectionately known as ‘the Godfather of Guji coffee’.

His diverse career path, including naval service and roles in government, coupled with his proactive stance on social matters, resulted in a prison sentence and subsequent education in Moscow. Haile and his family made Ethiopia their home again in 2001 after inheriting a piece of land. He then established the Cooperative Bank of Oromia, with a focus on coffee production. Through a collaborative effort alongside Tesfaye Bekele and Menno Simons, Haile’s passionate reconnection with coffee catalysed a remarkable transformation. Together, they redefined the landscape of Guji, shifting it from a once cattle-driven region to the thriving coffee hub we are familiar with today.
