Coffee The Way Nature Intended.
Cafe Altura coffees are organically grown at altitudes above 3000 feet on small family owned farms from around the world. The coffee tree grows according to its natural cycle. No harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used at any time in the growing or processing of Cafe Altura Organic Decaffeinated Coffees. We use the Mountain Water method which soaks the coffee beans in flavor charged, heated water, moving them through activated carbon filters to remove the caffeine while leaving the flavor intact. The result is a rich coffee with 97% of the caffeine safely removed. This process is accepted for use in Organic Coffees by the USDA and Stellar Certification services.
A Story As Old As The Land...
When Coffee was discovered a thousand years ago, it was a preciously guarded secret, so valuable the beans were used as currency. In 1980, a group of coffee lovers in Ojai, California heard of a family farm in the mountains of Mexico which grew coffee naturally, the same way it had been when first found in the wilds. Setting off on an adventure, our coffee lovers found a place where self-sustaining agriculture produced a smooth and aromatic coffee with no trace of bitterness. They came back and started Cafe Altura, the original organic coffee, so you can taste coffee the way nature intended.
