EA Decaf Process
Serra Negra, or “black mountain” is a Brazilian profile that captures the most classic profile from Minas Gerais, the growing region that includes Carmo de Minas. This coffee is designed to be a great workhorse offering from Brazil with a reasonable price that makes it a staple blend component. We cup for nuttiness, lemon-like acidity, and a heavy body.
This lot has been selected for decaffeination using ethyl acetate. The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavor integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all. (The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.)
