'Desvelado' translates to ‘sleepless’: a lighthearted joke, or a seriously fitting name for a decaffeinated coffee. ‘Unable to sleep after too much El Rincon espresso? Try our Decaf Desvelado!’
We’re tasting yellow fruits, baking spices, and soft nuttiness. There’s definitely a cheerful acidity in this decaf, but it’s supported by smooth sweetness, especially like milk chocolate and chewy caramel. Don’t be surprised if you feel like you’re drinking a sugar cookie.
The E.A. Decaffeination process uses ethyl acetate, a compound derived from sugar cane ethanol and acetic acid, to dissolve the caffeine that naturally occurs in green coffee seeds. Because the seeds remain relatively intact throughout the E.A. process, the coffee is able to retain more sweetness and complexity.
