About the decaf process:
Sugar cane ethyl acetate (E.A.) processing, also commonly referred to as natural decaffeinated, starts by fermenting molasses derived from sugar cane to create ethanol. This alcohol is then mixed with acetic acid, to create the compound ethyl acetate.
When the coffee is received it is first submitted to a condition of water and steam. This elevates the moisture contained and swells the bean in order to facilitate the extraction of caffeine. It is at this point, that the bean experiences an E.A. wash, which dissolves the caffeine. The beans are then cleaned with water, followed by steam, to clean the inner most portions of the bean. Finally, the beans are dried until reaching the moisture similar to which they had prior to the process.
Being a small batch roaster we can guarantee freshness in every bag. Our fresh roasted, whole bean coffees come from the best crops and are more flavorful and produce that “fresh” quality everyone is looking for in a delicious cup of coffee. Ground beans on the other hand, tend to lose their freshness & fragrance we're all looking for when we open a new bag of coffee. Fresh roasted coffee has also been proven to be beneficial to your health. Fresh roasted coffee contains some of the highest amounts of antioxidants that you can get.
