AN INNOVATIVE AND NATURAL PROCESS

This coffee is decaffeinated directly on site by Colombian producers, using a completely innovative technique. Rather than using traditional techniques such as decaffeination with methylene chloride or with water, a derivative of sugar cane is used: ethyl acetate.

the process:

  • Green coffee is steamed for 30 minutes to open the pores of the coffee, making it easier to extract the caffeine.
  • the coffee is placed in a bath of water and ethyl acetate, a famous derivative of sugar cane by fermentation.
  • The caffeine is "captured" by the solution, as the solution naturally binds to the chlorogenic acid salts in coffee.
  • The process is repeated several times for about 8 hours, then the coffee is steamed again to clean it from all traces of ethyl acetate.
  • All you have to do is dry the coffee and prepare it for roasting!
