Los Amigos is a sub-regional blend from the Department of Huila in Colombia. This blend is composed of microlots from four small producers from the micro-regions of San Agustín and Bruselas. The concept of a sub-regional blend comes from the desire to support smallholder farmers by combining very small lots to produce a larger coffee with better marketability. Truly, these lots together are greater than the sum of their parts. The four producers who have contributed lots to this coffee are:

Edilma Quinayas - San Agustín
Miller Quinayas - San Agustín
Luis Octavio Titimbo - Bruselas
Ana Nelly Luna - Bruselas

Decaf Amigos is decaffeinated using the Ethyl Acetate process. This process utilizes sugarcane, which is often grown at lower elevations than coffee and frequently planted at the bottom of the same mountains where coffee is grown. The Ethyl Acetate process gently extracts the caffeine from coffee beans as the solvent is washed over the beans repeatedly until more than 97% of the caffeine has been removed.
