Coffee from Planadas terroir is our first decaffeinated coffee obtained using a natural method involving sugar cane.
In Colombia, where sugar cane is produced in abundance, it makes good economic sense to use this resource to decaffeinate coffee. Molasses derived from sugar cane is fermented to create ethanol. This alcohol is then mixed with acetic acid to produce the ethyl acetate compound which is used for the decaffeination of the coffee beans.I want this coffee!
