Looking for a decaf bean that will give me the same experience as my usual brew, i enjoyed this espresso and found it really smooth. Great service from the Direct Coffee crew, will buy again.
Not sure if it's meant to be sweet but there's a definitely a hint of sweetness in this decaf, pleasant surprise. I had a friend taste and verify this coffee and she also tasted the sweetness. I love the taste of this coffee. It's got a good strong favour, zero acidity and makes a really rich flavoured latte. Code Black decafs are regular orders for me.
This decaf lot has gone through a completely natural decaffeination process, and we believe that it tastes incredible.
Sugarcane grown at origin is a key element in the production of ethyl acetate, naturally found in food. It is biologically derived from the fermentation of sugarcane mixed with acetic acid. This solution is used to soak the coffee, acting as a natural solvent to extract the caffeine. The solution is then steamed away, with the evaporation point of ethyl acetate occurring at 70 degrees celsius.
This decaffeinated lot is a blend from a group of 6 smallholders, spread out across Huila, Colombia.
