Epos Organic Fairtrade® 100% Arabica Peruvian Decaf coffee comes from the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Bagua Grande located in the Amazon region, in northeastern Perú.
The mountainous Peruvian Amazon region is composed mainly of rain forests (75%), which allows the coffee to grow and flourish under the shadows of the large trees of the forest.
This certified Organic & Fairtrade® coffee, is made of 80% Typica variety and 20% Caturra variety growing at 1500 meters altitude.
After the production and harvest, the cooperative makes a strict quality control in a laboratory with specialised personnel, in order to guarantee the best quality of coffee, which is subsequently decaffeinated using the CO2 method.
The result in cup is a fragrant coffee, with hints of vanilla and hazelnut.

About Epos Caffè
Epos Caffè is a young Italian company founded in 2011, that decided to enter the coffee industry to make a difference through choosing excellence, respect for culture and renewing the tradition while also paying attention to the fairness toward coffee producers across the world.
Epos’s mission is to offer the highest quality thanks to the professionalism, passion and wisdom of people who deeply love their work and to the care we devote to each stage of production, so that the demanding British coffee consumers and connoisseurs can re-discover forgotten flavors and traditions.
The careful selection of green coffee, the separate roasting by individual types and origins, the meticulous preparation of the blends, the grind and finally the correct packaging, give to our coffee an unmistakable and consistent aroma.
Ethics behind Epos Caffè
At the heart of our focus is to source only from those who pay particular attention to the economic, social and ecological sustainability of coffee, in compliance with the conditions of cultivation, since only through such conditions a good coffee can be crafted: good for producers, good for businesses and good for consumers.
Epos’s blends and Single Origin coffees are composed of certified washed coffee, that is always guaranteed from the same origins.
This allows us to guarantee a consistently excellent quality product, distinguished by a truly unique identity that is manifested through their taste, aroma, mouthfeel and aftertaste.
Meaning of Epos
Epos is a lengthy narrative poem, ordinarily concerning a serious subject containing details of heroic deeds and events significant to a culture or nation.
The reason why Epos decided to take this name was because it wanted to use Ancient Greek heroic deeds to identify some of their blends. Sicily being known as The Italian Greece it only made sense to use this set of analogies.
