Colombia Valle Del Cauca Sugarcane Decaf
caramel • cherry • hazelnut
- roasted & shipped the same day
- In stock, ready to ship
This 2021 crop is very similar to last year, which is great! I love the cherry notes in this coffee, mixed with the caramel sweetness and the juicy mouthfeel. It is sweet like I'd hope a good sugarcane process coffee would be, and the hazelnut finish adds a mellow creaminess to the cup. I love this coffee and wish I could drink it in the mornings. However, I still have that caffeine addiction, so this one stands as my evening nightcap.

Sugarcane is fermented and converted to EA (Ethyl Acetate), which is a naturally occurring compound and solvent that derives from the fermentation of the sugarcane.
When the coffee first arrives at the Decaf plant it is placed in big silos that give off a light steam. This is to open the pores of the beans to allow for easy extraction of the caffeine. It's also to remove the silver skin from the bean which can hinder the decaf process.
The green beans are then submerged into a tank filled with water and EA to begin the Decaf process. The EA naturally bonds with the compounds of the coffee, allowing for the decaffeination to occur.
The process takes about 24 hours and removes about 98-99% of the caffeine. The extracted caffeine is sold to energy drink companies or soda companies. The silver skin from the green bean that was removed is also used and sold as a fertilizer...a darn good fertilizer, too!

I'm sure that you've seen notes on our website about how 'We don't roast until you want it." or "Roasted Fresh After You Order", but have you thought about why and how we setup our business to do that?
