Green coffee beans are steamed for about 30 min prior to decaffeination to unlock their pores, allowing the caffeine extraction. Coffee is placed in a solution of water and Ethyl Acetate (E.A.) a naturally occurring compound and solvent derived through the fermentation of sugarcane. Green coffee is submerged in the solvent, which naturally bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acids within the coffee, allowing the extraction of caffeine. Once the coffee is saturated the tank is drained and a fresh solution is introduced. This continues for approximately 8 hours. After the last of the caffeine has been extracted, the coffee is removed from the solution and prepped for another steaming. The final low pressure steaming removes the remaining traces of E.A. Decaffeinated coffee is then dried, physically polished to ensure cleanliness, packed, and ready for export.
