DECAF COLOMBIA :
Notes of Milk Chocolate, Almond, Raisin, and Raspberry
Decaf drinkers, we have great news! Our Sugarcane Process Decaf (Ethyl Acetate) from Cundinamarca, Colombia is AMAZING!
Can you imagine a decaf with tasting notes of almond, nougat and berries? How about a decaf with mild acidity and medium body? This is possible thanks to the ethyl acetate process.
The name might sound like a caustic chemical, but ethyl acetate is an organic compound found in fruit juices, cereals and sugarcane; this is why it is known as a “natural” decaffeination process. This process extracts around 97% of the caffeine, and it begins with fermentation of molasses derived from sugarcane to create ethanol. This alcohol is then mixed with acetic acid (the main component of vinegar), to create the compound ethyl acetate..
Because ethyl acetate comes from sugar cane and is an organic compound that can effectively remove caffeine, the coffee’s flavor attributes will NOT be extracted like in Swiss Water Process and will rather be slightly sweeter thanks to the solvent.
We’re so excited to share the hard work and care that has gone into producing this incredible decaf coffee.
