Plum and caramel shortbread with soft acidity and medium body

We chose this small lot of decaffeinated Shakisso to see us through until our new crop from El Pastoral arrives in August. The decaffeination process uses liquid carbon dioxide and water to extract the caffeine from the coffee. This is a particularly effective process, utilising liquid carbon dioxide and pressure, which enables low temperatures to be used. These factors help retain the original flavour profile of the coffee. Shakisso is owned by Haile Gebre who after almost forty years working in coffee cooperatives, established Shakisso in 2005. The farm has 640 hectares planted with coffee and the fields are littered with holes where gold mining has taken place over many years.
