This Colombian green decaffeinated coffee was made in mind of highlighting the accompanying flavor profiles found within the region, while producing a great decaf for your consumers to enjoy. The decaffeination process is solvent-based, meaning the caffeine is removed from the coffee beans utilizing ethyl acetate. Ethyl acetate, also known as athyl alcohol, is derived from a mix of acetic acid and a natural extract distilled from sugar cane, blackberries, beets, and sometimes grapes.
Utilizing a direct-solvent process ensures that the means are steamed to open their pores, rinsed in ethyl acetate repeatedly to remove the caffeine, and almost completely dried before sealing with natural wax. This process removes any chance of affecting the flavor, fragrance, or aroma of the coffee, while ensuring the coffee is free of caffeine.
