SUGAR CANE DECAFFEINATION PROCESS:
Sugar cane decaffeination is often termed as a natural decaffeination process. Ethyl acetate, used in the process, is an organically existing compound (C4H8O2) and a by-product found most commonly during the fermentation of fruits, and it is present in both ripe bananas and beer, just to name a few.
The facility in Colombia, where this lot undergoes decaffeination process, uses water from the Navado el Ruis (a volcano between Caldas and Tolima) and natural ethyl acetate from fermented sugarcane sourced in the southern region of Palmira, Colombia.
The process begins with steaming of the coffee to increase its porosity, which also starts the hydrolysis of caffeine usually bonded to salts and chlorogenic acid in the bean. The beans are then submerged in an ethyl acetate solvent, until 97% of the caffeine is removed. A final steam is then used to lift residual traces of the organic compound.
The ultimate residue of ethyl acetate is less than 30 ppm, which is a level dramatically less than that of a banana!
