Mexico La Laja MWP Decaf
This Mexican Decaffeinated Mountain Water Processed coffee (MWP) is a traceable single estate coffee from the Finca La Laja farm close to the village of Huatusco in the state of Veracruz.
La Laja is owned by Hermilo Sampieri. For three generations, the Sampieri family has produced coffee.
With fertile soil and a tropical climate the coffee growing conditions are ideal. Today, the farm is certified for its sustainable production. The name "La Laja" is derived from the name of a stone common in the region of Huatusco, Veracruz.
Using water from the glaciers of the highest mountain in Mexico, a method called Mountain Water Process, the coffee is immersed to extract caffeine. This method allows the green beans to maintain their flavour, as the water passes through a filter that removes the caffeine from the water, so that the water can be re-used with just the bean profiles it originated with. There are zero chemicals used in this decaffeination process.

When you order some from our online store, you receive a bag of coffee that is very much a premium product, where the aromas and flavours will be exceptionally delicious, and remarkably better than what you may be used to from the supermarket.
