*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 the different 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.

With Vienna roast beans have a scarlet maple coloring with an oily surface. This roast offers dense caramelized sugars, and smokiness for more bittersweet flavors. Think cooked fruit. Think maple and mesquite. Think dark chocolate.

French roast is all about the roast profile, with heavy oils on the beans and a dark brown color. But we make sure the beans offer something more—heavy mouthfeel, smoky flavors, and a sweet, refreshing aftertaste.
