250gm Specialty Decaf
Peaberries are a natural mutation where one bean forms inside the coffee cherry instead of two.
These beans are denser, sweeter and more intense in flavour.
Peebies are a combination of peaberries and smaller screen size beans that are often discarded because they are smaller.
By selecting peebies for decaffeination we are providing a market for an often overlooked coffee providing more income to producers for a unique and flavourful coffee.
The Water EA decaffeination process uses spring water and ethyl acetate, a by-product of the sugar cane industry. This process allows for gentle caffeine extraction from the bean avoiding excessive heat and pressure thus retaining the natural structure of the coffee bean cells.
This means the original aroma and flavours of the coffee are retained. Ethyl Acetate is a substance naturally present in coffee and residual levels evaporate during the roasting process.
