Colombia Decaf

Description

We believe that just because you choose to drink decaf doesn’t mean you should have to compromise on quality. Our decaffeinated coffee is roasted in a way that will be suitable for all brewing methods.

The coffee beans for this decaf first undergo steaming at low pressures to remove the silver skins. They are then soaked in hot water to allow the beans to swell and soften. This step prepares the coffee for hydrolysis, where the caffeine, which is attached to the salts of the chlorogenic acid within the beans, dissolves. Finally the coffee is submerged several times in ethyl acetate solvent (EA). In the case of sugarcane decaf, the ethyl acetate is naturally obtained from the fermentation of sugarcane grown in Colombia and not from chemical synthesis. Once the caffeine is reduced to the desired level, the beans are cleaned to remove the remaining EA and dried to between 10–12%.
