'Desvelado' translates to ‘sleepless’: a lighthearted joke, or a seriously fitting name for a decaffeinated coffee. ‘Unable to sleep after too much El Rincon? Try our Decaf Desvelado!’
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.
