About the coffee
Process: Fully Washed/ Decaffeinated
Type: Castillo, Caturra, Colombia
This decaf process works by soaking green coffee in a water bath & a solvent called ethyl acetate, derived from fermented sugar among other natural sources. The solvent bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid within the coffee which allows for the extraction of caffeine.
This Colombian E.A. (ethyl acetate) decaf lot is cupped as regular green sample & specifically identified for decaffeination, which happens at origin before the coffee goes to export.This allows us to maintain both the integrity of the quality of the coffees we choose to decaf, but also to extend our intentional & responsible sourcing to our decaf offerings as well as our “regular.”
