  • DECAFFEINATED COLOMBIA EL CARMEN

Decaffeinated Colombian El Carmen

Decaffeinated coffee is a revolution in its own right. We have seen a number of different processes over the years and progressively the coffee outcome has improved.

This lot we cupped blind and was amongst our favourite coffees from Colombia this season, as well as being a decaf. What is different about this one? This is made with a naturally occurring solvent found in sugar cane; ethyl acetate. The result is a clean cup without a trace of processing.
