Tumbaga Sugarcane Decaf
Brown Sugar • Cocoa • Grapefruit
Only the best decaf is chosen to be roasted by Avatar Coffee Roasters.
We use coffee from Colombia that goes through a process to remove 99.9% of caffeine before roasting.
The EA sugarcane process in a quick summary:
• Sugarcane is fermented and converted to EA (Ethyl Acetate), which is a naturally occurring compound and solvent that derives from the fermentation of the sugarcane.
• When the coffee first arrives to the Decaf plant it is placed in big silos that give off a light steam. This is to open the pours of the beans to allow for easy extraction of the caffeine. It's
also to remove the silver skin from the bean which can hinder the decaf process.
• The green beans are then submerged into a tank filled with water and Ethyl Acetate to begin the Decaf process. The EA naturally bonds with the compounds of the coffee, allowing for the decaf process to occur.
• The process takes about 24 hours and removes about 98-99% of the caffeine. The extracted caffeine is sold by the Decaf plant to energy drink companies or soda companies. The silver skin from the green bean that was removed is also used and sold as a fertilizer...a darn good fertilizer, too!

I’ve been looking for years for a great decaf, and finally, this one is it.

I’ve been drinking decaf for over 15 years and the Avatar decaf is by far the best tasting decaf coffee I’ve ever had.
