Tasting notes - NECTARINE • COCOA • PANELA
This Colombian E.A. (ethyl acetate) decaf is cupped specifically for its quality and sourced by single-origin, either region or farm. It is decaffeinated in Colombia using a special, natural process that utilises a solvent of ethyl acetate, which can be derived from fermented sugar. Cafe Imports has personally visited the decaffeination plant several times, and are impressed by the process as well as the quality in the cup! 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 then steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavour integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all: The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01-0.03% caffeine. Ethically sourced by Cafe Imports.
Todo Good is Colombian coffee roasted by Colombian couple Carolina and Santiago who also run SONIDO! in Fitzroy and Arepa Days in Preston.
They select marvellous green beans, sourced responsibly by their import partners, and roast every week to supply shops with fresh and exciting coffee.
