Experimental & E.A. Decaf
A decaf coffee bursting with fruity goodness and funky flair, perfectly embodying its avant-garde title.
In the landscape of experimentally-processed coffees, rarely do you come across one that has been decaffeinated. We take pride in the quality of our decaf coffee and we decided to bump it up a notch. Thanks to Sebastian Ramirez, this Anaerobic coffee has been co-fermented with strawberries & glucose to achieve a fruity flavor that cuts through the decaffeination process.
The Ramirez family has been in the coffee business for over a century, initially focusing on traditional cultivation and processing methods. However, when Sebastian joined the family business, his thirst for knowledge and technical expertise led him to dive deep into the production of experimental processed coffees. Today, Sebastian is renowned globally as an expert in experimentation.
How it's decaffeinated
This coffee is decaffeinated using the E.A. method, a natural process which maintains the coffee's integrity during decaffeination. The E.A. process includes soaking the unroasted coffee in a solution of water and Ethyl Acetate (E.A.). Ethyl Acetate may sound a bit scary, but it’s quite natural. Its creation begins with sugar cane that is turned into molasses. The molasses is then fermented to create ethanol and processed with acetic acid to create the Ethyl Acetate that will be used in the extraction of caffeine. Ethyl Acetate is used in food pretty extensively and is known for bringing a fruity flavor to hard candy, chewing gum, ice cream, and other products. It can also be naturally occurring in fruits (pineapple, berries, apples, and pears), and is a key to the flavor of rum. The unroasted, green coffee is soaked in the E.A. solution which bonds to the caffeine, extracting it out of the bean. Once all the caffeine is removed, the bean is steamed to remove residual E.A., and voila! You’ve got decaf, baby!

By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.
Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.
If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
