Cartwheel - Legoman [DECAF EXTRA BAG]
65 Growers of the Popayan region of Colombia
Washed and E.A. Decaffeinated
Stone Fruit / Caramel / Chocolate Wafer
The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of Ethyl Acetate (EA), a naturally occurring solvent derived from sugar cane, which bonds to the caffeine molecules and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, with the finished product retaining its flavour integrity but containing almost no caffeine at all (0.01–0.03% caffeine).
This decaf lot has been sourced through Cofinet, who started sourcing and exporting specialty coffee in 2015. Now, they support a large number of Colombian producers, as well as exporting coffee from their own farm and processing centre.
