New decaffeinated coffee. Methods of decaffeination

We now have two decaf positions: Virgin Americano Decaf and Colombia Tumbaga Sugarcane Decaf

You already know from our article Decaff coffee: how it is made and why you should try it, that decaf is the same delicious coffee, but it contains almost no caffeine. Its usual taste remains as a result of special processing of coffee beans.

What methods evaporate caffeine?

Virgin Americano Decaff is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water ecological water method.

What is this process?

Caffeine is removed from green beans by soaking them in hot water. It is then retained using activated charcoal filters, leaving all the flavor properties in the water. A new batch of green beans is soaked in this water, which does not contain caffeine, but remains saturated with the same components of taste and aroma. Water naturally removes only caffeine from a new batch of grains. Thus, caffeine beans are deprived of caffeine, but retain their taste and aroma.

The Colombia Tumbaga Sugarcane Decaf Decaf process is made with Ethyl Acetate (EA)

What is EA?

It is a natural compound derived from cane sugar that can be found in fruits and other foods. Coffee beans are moistened with liquid from EA, which circulates over the entire surface of the coffee. After the caffeine level drops, the EA residues on the beans are removed by evaporation.

The methods are different, but the coffee remains the same tasty and retains all its beneficial properties. So sip and rate!
