Variety: Caturra, Colombia, Castillo
Process: E.A.(sugar cane) decaffeinated
Hola mi amigo. Our Mexican chemical free decaf is having a holiday. But don't stress decaf lovers as we have sourced a fine replacement from Colombia.
Sweet, clean & smooth to the very last drop with notes of brown sugar, berries and a buttery mouthfeel.
Our Colombian E.A. (ethyl acetate) decaf is special in more ways than one: First, it's cupped specifically for quality and sourced by single origin, either region or farm. Using a special, natural process that utilizes a solvent of ethyl acetate, which can be derived from fermented sugar.
The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavour integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all. (The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.)
