Sweet coffee with a creamy body. In aroma, we can find notes of cocoa powder, honey and caramel. It has soft acidity and a long and pleasant aftertaste that reminds us of maple syrup.

Finca Chambakú is one of the farms that NOMAD works with every year. Juan Felipe Restrepo (Pipe to his friends) brings us a new batch, this time a decaffeinated coffee with the “sugar cane process” method.

Pipe decided to go a step further and decaffeinate one of his natural processes, its pronounced acidity, with fruitier notes, compensates for the characteristic sweetness that the decaffeination process generates, thus creating a much more complex cup.


The process is carried out through an ethyl acetate from sugar cane. It is a selective solvent for caffeine that is present in nature. It is obtained through the fermentation of sugar cane. The coffee is then submerged four times in a mixture of water with this acetate, which absorbs almost completely the caffeine from the coffee. Once this process has been completed, the coffee is dried until reaching 12.5% moisture and covered with a layer of organic wax to protect it so that it will stay at its best for longer.

All our coffees with roasting for espresso can be prepared in your home Moka Pot with the recipe that you can find in the NOMAD at Home section.

If you have an espresso machine we recommend using 18 grams of coffee to extract 36 grams in a cup in a time of 29 seconds. We use a temperature of 93ºC with the help of 8 bars of pressure.

We offer you these guidelines so that you have a guide when developing a recipe, but you should bear in mind that it can change depending on the coffee machine you are working with, the grinder and the water you are using.

Our machine: La Marzocco, Linea PB
Our grinder: Victoria Arduino, Mythos One
