Colombia is the third-largest producer of coffee in the world and the largest producer of washed Arabica. Colombia Supremo refers to the largest size of beans from Colombia. Supremo is a screen size of 17 or 18. Huila is framed by the Central and Eastern ranges of the Andes and greatly benefits from the nitrogen-rich volcanic soil. Most of the Region sits in the Magdalena Valley which provides great variation in climate. Most of the farms in the Huila region are between 1200 and 1800 m.a.s.l.

The DCM decaffeination process used for this lot ensures a sweet cup with brightened acidity. The Omni Roast profile perfected for this lot helps the coffee perform well in espresso and manual brewing methods.

The DCM decaffeination method is thought by some in the coffee industry to maintain better flavour compared to other methods. This process involves soaking coffee beans in hot water to extract as much caffeine as possible from the coffee beans. Following this, the beans are removed and methylene chloride solvent is added to bond with the caffeine. After the methylene chloride-caffeine mixture is skimmed off from the surface of the mixture, the beans are returned to reabsorb the liquid. This method of decaffeination removes more than 97% of caffeine from a batch of coffee and ensures a rich and delicious flavour.

Extensive research data has led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine that methylene chloride is safe for use in coffee decaffeination. While the FDA regulation allows for up to 10 parts per million (ppm) of residual methylene chloride, actual coffee-industry practice results in levels that are 100 times lower than this amount.
