Other than the attention to detail involved, what makes this decaf so interesting is that it is decaffeinated by what is called Sugar Process. The process to decaffeinate starts by fermenting sugarcane molasses to create ethanol, which is mixed with acetic acid to create Ethyl Acetate (EA). From there, the coffee is steamed to open the pores, which allows for the extraction of caffeine molecules, and then placed in a solution of EA where it bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid inside the beans. When the coffee is fully saturated, the solution is drained and refilled until 97% or more of the caffeine is removed.

We hadn’t tried a decaf of this calibre before this and frankly, we think it's the best decaf we've ever had Enjoy!
