This year we are releasing several coffees from our direct trade partner, Carlos Pola. This collaboration is something we are proud of at Origin and we are very excited to launch this White Honey decaf from his San Antonio farm. Sourced with the same care and attention as every coffee in our range, this was produced specifically for our decaf program and exhibits all the refined attributes we look for in a great decaf. The White Honey process is very mild. Chosen to add a sugar-rich sweetness to the coffee whilst maintaining cup acidity and structure.
This coffee is then shipped to Germany and decaffeinated using the all-natural carbonated water method. It is submerged in warm pressurised water to open up the bean before carbon molecules are added, which bind with the caffeine. This process doesn’t draw out any carbohydrates or proteins which are what give the coffee its flavour. The water and carbon are then removed and the coffee dried.
Espresso: 1:2 dose to yield, extracted in 28-36 secs
Filter: 0.07:1 coffee to water, brewed in 3-4 mins
Roast days are Tuesdays and Fridays. All orders placed by midnight the day before will be sent out first-class on the roast day.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don’t label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
