Magdelana Decaf, Colombia:
This sugar cane decaf is sourced from Cedro Alto Coffee, a group of small coffee farmers utilising the sharing economy to export their microlots. They are focused on cup quality, environmental and economic sustainability, and transparency in the supply chain.
Sugarcane ethyl acetate (E.A.) processing, commonly referred to as natural decaffeination, starts with a gentle decaffeination process with steam and ethyl acetate (a natural side product from the sugar and wine fermentation) – to leave the high quality beans with a full flavour profile.
This is the go to decaf coffee for our wholesale customers for espresso and rightly so! It has amazing flavour and consistency. We recommend as a starting point try 18g of coffee for a 38g shot in around 28 seconds. Expect a full bodied, rich espresso with good complexity.
For use as a filter coffee, either pour over or cafetiere, we recommend a ratio of 30g of coffee per 500ml of water.
Roast Level: medium
A medium roasted coffee which will please both espresso and filter drinkers
