DESCAFECOL is the only decaffeination plant in South America to use this process. The remaining residual acetate averages 1.0 ppm, which is very low compared to the international standards of quality of approximately 10 p.p.
For every 12 oz bag of coffee, we provide 1-week's worth of lunches for 1 child in GO Ministres' nutrition centers in the Dominican Republic & Haiti. GO Ministries provides roughly 1,000 children with one hot meal per day, six days a week. For many kids, this is their only hot meal of the day. In addition to a meal, each child receives a vitamin to help boost their immune system and fight malnutrition.
