Decaf Colombia Magdalena
DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
This single origin decaf coffee was decaffeinated at the Descafecol plant in Manizales, Colombia, through a special process using water and ethyl acetate from local sugar cane. Ethyl acetate's low boiling point enables gentle caffeine extraction and avoids excessive heat and pressure so the natural structure of the green coffee bean cells is retained. The result is an exceptionally complex decaf coffee.
