Decaf coffee

Bountiful decaf 14 oz.can                                                            $8.50

Bountiful decaf coffee comes from the Las Colinas Co-op in El Salvador.  During a brutal civil war government land reform gave many poor Salvadorans their own land.  Without technical help or access to credit, most of those farmers went bankrupt.  But the farmers of Las Colinas co-op persevered.  They learned how to run a business and how to use new farming techniques.  Now 95 families farm collectively on land once owned by one wealthy plantation owner.  Everyone is paid the same wage per hour.

Note:  Here are our supplier’s description of some of  the coffee roasts.

Medium roast offers the sweetest, brightest, most accurate flavor profile of the individual coffees. It reveals the coffee bean’s true characteristics.

In full city roast the sugars caramelize a little longer, offering new depth to the flavors without covering up acidity. We’re taming the tart and highlighting the sweet.
