Through Cafe Imports, we take advantage of a great program dedicated to bringing high-quality, non-chemically processed decaf coffees to market. The process of decaffeination by Ethyl Acetate 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 caffeine content (0.1–0.3%.) Through Cafe Imports’ Origin Select Decaf program, Colombian E.A. decafs are cupped as regular green samples and specifically identified for decaffeination, which happens in-country before the coffee goes to export. This allows them to maintain both the integrity of quality as well as responsible sourcing.
