Recommended Roast Level:
Full City Plus (Dark)
The Swiss Water® Process (SWP) and Dry Process (DP) methods have come together to produce this one-of-a-kind decaf coffee. Ethiopian dry-processed beans are my favorite to offer, so I was thrilled to get my hands on our first decaf, DP coffee. I prefer to roast this coffee dark to highlight the bold, chocolate flavors. There are complimentary fruited notes, like dried apricot or strawberry, that shine through thanks to the natural process. It brews a rich cup with a juicy and complex mouthfeel. I'm very glad we're able to offer this one!

Ethiopia Limu Swiss Water® Process Decaf Coffee Production:
Here's another custom decaf by Swiss Water Processing. Limu Kossa farm is both a geographic area of the Oromia district, as well as the name of a privately run farm in the region. It's a sizable estate that is broken into 15-hectare sections with marked varieties of coffee planted within. This lot is from a part of the farm run by a gentleman named Gidhey, who's has a long coffee history in this area. His first farm was lost to re-zoning of the area to forest, not a bad thing, but forced Gidhey to continue his farming somewhere else. That "somewhere else" is a 350-hectare piece of land, the coffee planted beneath the shade of primary forest canopy high above. The organization that Gidhey has employed at the farm level and in his processing and natural beauty of Limu Kossa farm are breathtaking, to say the least. They are producing both washed and natural coffee, this being a fully dry process lot. The farm sits just above 1900 meters above sea level and stretches upward to 2100 meters at the highest part which they refer to as "Sinsina". This is a fully organic certified coffee, and while it is also Rain Forest Alliance certified, we did not bring it in as such.
