Swiss Water Organic Decaf, Lot 2

Let's face it: a lot of us drink coffee because we're undeniably hooked. While we all can easily spend hours waxing poetic over coffee's many unique flavors and aromas, a big motivating factor behind our bean habit for many of us is simply—we need it. It gets, and keeps, us going.

So what about decaf?

Well, we think it deserves center stage, and if your decaf offerings aren't as tasty as your regular coffees, they ought to be. Our latest decaf spot offerings from Limmu Kossa in Ethiopia and Gashonga in Rwanda are floral, complex, sweet, juicy and downright delicious, made possible via natural Swiss Water processing that allows the original flavors to shine through. Fair Trade and Organic as well, we're proud to offer decaf at its very best—delicious, traceable, and value-packed.

These are coffees you can drink all day, every day.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Uplifting a community.

Giday Berhe began his career as a coffee trader in 1993 and in the following years, opened wet and dry mills in Jimma to supply the market with quality coffee. In 2000, Giday founded Limmu Kossa in the village of Galeh in Jimma, and today the farm employs 500 full-time, year-round workers cultivating exquisite Ethiopian heirloom varietals across 356 hectares of land.

Giday is as relentless in his pursuit of coffee excellence as he is driven by his work in his local community - he is known around the village as “Abba Ollie” or “he who uplifts.” The name is fitting - Giday invests significant portions of Limmu Kossa’s profits into building schools and roads for the village, providing health care access and subsidized goods and services to workers, and teaching farmers better practices and techniques in order to increase quality and receive higher premiums.

Uncompromising professionalism

We've been working with Limmu Kossa since 2017. From the very beginning we've been blown away by Giday's rigorous quality standards and commitment to transparency and traceability. Limmu Kossa truly stands out in a country where excellent coffee abounds.


Top-grade and organic.

Limmu Kossa cultivates its heirloom varietals to be as close to their wild grown counterparts as they can, made possible by exceptional agro-forestry practices. The plants grow in the shade of 43 different species of trees, allowing for slow cherry development and beans that are denser and more flavorful. Limmu Kossa is certified organic. Cherries are processed with two on-site environmentally friendly wet mills and one eco-mill equipped for both wet and dry processing.
