Ethyl acetate is a natural compound derived from sugar cane found in various beverages. This compound is used to circulate through green coffee for the purposes of decaffeination, removing at least 97% of caffeine. The process takes place at the Descafecol facility in Manizales, Colombia, which is closer to farms and reduces transportation and fossil fuel usage. Additionally, the availability of sugar cane in Colombia also reduces the need for imported ingredients. Compared to other decaffeination methods like the Swiss Water Process, Ethyl Acetate (EA) uses less water and preserves more flavor. This method retains the coffee's flavor profile remarkably well, distinguishing it from traditional decaf coffees. As a result, we prioritize sourcing EA process decaffeinated coffees and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
