Decaf de Caña – Columbia

raspberries, milk chocolate, nutella

  • Decaf

This is a fresh harvest of Colombian coffee from the famous Huila region. This coffee is a blend of micro lost from small farmers. The coffee is cupped and evaluated and then blended based on the cup profile. The sugarcane process or EA process is the most gentle to the bean and allows it to conserve most of its original flavour. We roast this coffee as an Omni roast profile so you can enjoy it as an espresso or filter coffee.

Sugarcane Decaf Process

The Sugarcane Decaf Process coffee first undergoes steaming at low pressures to remove the silver skins before then being moistened with hot water to allow the beans to swell and soften. This then prepares the coffee for the hydrolysis of caffeine, which is attached to the salts of the chlorogenic acid within the coffee. The extractors (naturally obtained from the fermentation of sugar cane and not from chemical synthesis) are then filled with moistened coffee which is washed several times with the natural ethyl acetate solvent, to reduce the caffeine down to the correct levels. Once this process is finished the coffee then must be cleaned of the remaining ethyl acetate by using a flow of low pressured saturated steam, before moving onto the final steps. From here the coffee is sent to vacuum drying drums where the water previously used to moisten the beans is removed and the coffee dried to between 10-12%. The coffee is then cooled quickly to ambient temperature using fans before the final step of carnauba wax being applied to polish and provide the coffee with protection against environmental conditions and to help provide stability.
