Named after an alloy of gold, copper and silver that was used in Colombia to make small objects, this Tumbaga Sugarcane takes decaf coffee to the next level. The decaffeination utilizes ethyl acetate (EA) a naturally-occurring compound derived from molasses. The coffee beans are moistened with water and EA is circulated throughout. The EA binds with the caffeine in the bean and extracts the caffeine while leaving most of the other flavor compounds. After the desired caffeine level is reached, the EA residue on the beans is removed by steaming them. As the process magnifies sweetness and acidity, only beans with high body, high sweetness and low acidity are selected. The result is a balanced, chocolatey and sweet cup that we’re confident is the best on the market.
