Los Idolos Decaf
Variety: Caturra and Typica
Altitude: 1600-1900 masl
Processing: Fully Washed, E.A. Processed Decaf
Tasting Notes: Chocolate, Toasted Nuts, Strawberry
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. The takeaway: this particular E.A. processed lot, sourced from the municipality of San Agustin in Huila, is one of the best decaf coffees we’ve tasted!
