Each coffee is special, and as such, requires a great amount of care. The same is true for decaf coffees, with the added wrinkle of the decaffeination process. This particular coffee, which comes to us from Caldas, Colombia, is decaffeinated through an Ethyl Acetate (EA) process. Long story short, EA is a compound found naturally in fermenting sugarcane, another Colombian crop. EA bonds to caffeine and is gently steamed to remove almost all traces, without the use of any artificial chemicals. Please enjoy, at any time of day!
