Decaf has improved exponentially in recent years. The decaf coffees we select are first cupped specifically for their quality and sourced at origin, Colombia.
The E.A. (ethyl acetate) process works by soaking green coffee in a bath of
water and a solvent called ethyl acetate, which is naturally 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. The coffee is removed from its bath and steamed at low pressure to ensure no traces of E.A. are left, and the finished product is almost entirely free of any but the most trivial (0.1–0.3%) caffeine content.
