Colombia - Palestina (Decaf)Single Origin
This coffee utilises a washed process prior to decaffeination. Ripe cherries are selectively handpicked depulped and traditionally fermented in tanks for 20-30 hours to break down the remaining mucilage. At this point the coffee is thoroughly washed in clean water, followed by sun-drying on raised beds for 20-30 days.
The decaffeination process is derived from a mix of acetic acid (vinegar) and a natural extract distilled from sugarcane, blackberries, beets or sometimes grapes. The beans are steamed to open their pores and are then rinsed in ethyl acetate repeatedly to remove the caffeine.
