Various Smallholder Farms

Importer: Cafe Imports

Notes on the Green Coffee production and selection, From the Importer Website (Cafe Imports):

This Colombian E.A. (ethyl acetate) decaf offering is special in more ways than one: First, it was cupped specifically for its quality and sourced by single-origin, in this case by region, from various smalholder farms. We call them Decaf De Caña because they're custom decaffeinated in Colombia, using a special, natural process that utilizes a solvent of ethyl acetate, which can be derived from fermented sugar. Cafe Imports staff has personally visited the decaffeination plant several times, and we are impressed by the process as well as the quality in the cup!

The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavor integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all. (The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.)

We roast in small batches twice a week, on Sundays and Wednesdays, so your coffee is always fresh.  If there is a lag between your order date and shipping date that is due to needing to wait until the next roast date to fulfill your order.

The most delicious decaf coffee I've ever had!
I'll be setting up a monthly subscription.

Amy F. (New York, US)

Thank you so much for a delicious decaf coffee! I gifted your coffee to my sister who only drinks decaf and I shared a cup with her. It's full bodied and just as wonderful as your dark roast that I usually order.

Carole C. (New Paltz, US)
You can't tell it's DECAF!!!

This is by far the BEST Decaf coffee we have ever tasted!! My husband switched to decaf, for health reasons, and we have spent the past 4 YEARS looking for a good cup of coffee. We thought we had to settle, and then we found you!!!!! My husband has NEVER asked for a specific brand of coffee, until he tried Applied Arts Colombia Nariño EA Decaf de Caña. This is a solid, smooth, and flavorful medium roast coffee with hints of chocolate & cherries, and low acidity. We immediately signed up for monthly deliveries (easy, convenient, fast shipping & Loyalty Rewards have already paid off!!!) He tells everyone about this coffee, and still can't believe it's Decaf!! Thank you :-)

Excellent decaf

For health reasons I have switched to Decaf but I still love a great cup of coffee in the morning. Colombia Nariño EA Decaf de Caña (Medium Roast) fulfills this need for a low acid full bodied cup of coffee in the morning. The aroma is wonderful also.

Peggy (Charlottesville, US)
Delicious decaf!

We've tried several of Applied Arts coffees and find them all excellent. Currently drinking half-caf coffee, mixing this one with Crosshatch.
