Product Details

Sustainably decaffeinated using a process derived from fermenting sugar cane. Ethyl acetate (E.A.) is produced from fermenting sugar cane in a similar fashion as making wine. Actually E.A. is the common ester in wine!

The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid that naturally occur in 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, and 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.)
