Peru Medium Decaf 1lb
Our Peruvian Decaf is a 100% Arabica bean coffee from the Jaén and
Cajamarca regions. Our water-processed decafs are done in a facility in
Mexico called Descamex. In order to remove the caffeine in this process, green coffee is soaked in a water solution, which removes both the caffeine as well as other solubles in the coffee (flavor compounds, for instance). The water is removed from the seeds and run through a special filter that captures caffeine molecules and allows them to be strained from the solution. The solution—now containing flavor compounds but no caffeine—is then reintroduced to the green
coffee seeds, which reabsorb the soluble materials. The coffee is then dried once more, and prepared for reexport. Our roast produces a Graham cracker and cocoa flavor with citric acidity.
