Full flavour minus the buzz
Chaparral Decaf has notes of apple crumble, chocolate and lime.
Sugar Cane Decaf Process
The coffee is steamed to remove the silverskins then moistened with hot water to prepare them for the hydrolysis of caffeine, which is attached to the salts of the chlorogenic acid within the coffee.
The moistened coffee is then washed with natural ethyl acetate solvent, to reduce the caffeine down to the correct levels. Then the coffee is steam washed and dried to a hydration of 10-12%.
This is a medium roast coffee with huge complexity and character. Sweet and fruity, it's a coffee to savour.
