Origin: Mexico Esmerelda EA
Processing: Mexico Esmeralda EA Natural Decaf is decaffeinated using Ethyl Acetate (EA). In this method the green beans are steamed or soaked to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The expanded beans are then soaked in EA, which bonds with the caffeine molecules and breaks them away from the bean. The decaffeinated coffee is then removed from the EA solvent and rinsed thoroughly. EA is a naturally occurring organic compound found in fruits and vegetables that is synthesized for coffee decaffeination.
Roast: Espresso Roast
Taste Profile:This decaf is roasted a little longer to purge the oils to the surface of the bean. This espresso roast is a deep rich taste. We recommend it for making decaf espresso. Great taste, without the caffeine.
