We've always taken great pride in our decaf, showcasing coffees that taste great and just so happen to be decaffeinated! This new decaf, produced by Forest Coffee in Colombia, makes the most of the Ethyl Acetate decaffeination method to remove the caffeine but leave us with plenty of sweetness and flavours to produce an incredible cup of coffee.

The coffee is processed at the Descafecol plant in Manizales. The decaffeination process at this plant uses ethyl acetate derived 100% from sugar cane mixed with mountain water, together removing 99.7% of the caffeine present. When the coffee is received, it is first conditioned using water and steam. This elevates the moisture content and swells the seeds to facilitate the extraction of caffeine. At this point, the coffee is washed in ethyl acetate which dissolves the caffeine. The beans are then cleaned with water, followed by steam, and finally, are dried until they reach a stable moisture content. This method avoids excessive heat or pressure, which can radically disrupt a green bean's cellular structure.
