About this coffee;
This decaf ticks all of the boxes; it has a great taste, a very low caffeine content (minimum 97% of caffeine is removed) and a lower carbon footprint than most other decaffeination methods.
The coffee is grown at selected farms in the Popayan region of Colombia’s Cauca department to the usual high standards we expect of this area. The first stage of processing takes place in Popayan before the coffee is transported slightly further north to Caldas for decaffeination. Most other decaf coffee has to travel from origin to decaffeination plants in Canada, Mexico or Germany before making it to the roaster.
The ethyl acetate (EA) decaf method uses sugar cane, which is a plentiful resource in Colombia, and water to create a natural ethanol. This is combined with acetic acid to form the EA which is then used to remove caffeine from the coffee beans which have been steam treated in preparation. The coffee isn’t exposed to excessive temperatures as with other methods, which allows it to retain much of its original flavour and sweetness.
