Sweet, a little savory, big on flavor and nearly free of caffeine! This decaffeinated Colombia coffee is made using a process that utilizes the solvent ethyl acetate, which is made from fermented sugar. 

The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds. The finished product retains its flavor integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all. (The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.)

This particular lot is blended from the parchment deliveries of various smallholder growers who live and work in Colombia's Huila department.
