Sugarcane decaf, also commonly referred to as natural decaffeinated, takes decaf coffee to the next level using a relatively new and revolutionary decaf technique. It utilizes a naturally occurring compound, ethyl acetate (EA), derived from sugarcane, to decaffeinate coffee.
The process is relatively simple, the coffee beans are moistened with water and EA is circulated throughout. The EA binds with the caffeine in the bean and extracts the caffeine while leaving most of the other flavour compounds.
Have a good night!
