Flores Laga Lizu SWP Decaf: Roast City+
Flores Laga Lizu SWP Decaf
Notes: Cocoa roast tones, toasted nut and grain
Origin: Single Origin
Roasted to City+, cocoa roast tones, toasted nut and grain notes mingle nicely. The brewed coffee shows flavour characteristics of Nutella spread on toast, cocoa powder, and the grainy side of carob and malted grains, with a short finish. It makes a nice light espresso on its own.
This coffee is sourced in the Ngada Regency. Most farms are planted at 1500+ meters and grow a mix of older Typica trees and S795 hybrids. Most of the coffees are processed on hand-cranked or motorized depulping machines on the farm and fermented in buckets or small tanks. Because of the nutrient rich soils, they are able to grow coffee using fully organic farm practices, though they are not certified.
Swiss Water in Vancouver, BC processed this coffee. Their chemical-free method uses only water to remove 99.9% of the caffeine. In comparison to many other caffeine extraction methods, the Swiss Water method is relatively gentle, leaving much of the volatile compounds affecting flavours and aroma intact.
