About This Coffee

Roasters receive green coffee that is already decaffeinated at origin or a separate processing facility. There are different ways to decaffeinate coffee, but this offering is decaffeinated by the Sugarcane Ethyl Acetate (EA) process.

During this process, green coffee is first sorted then steamed for 30 minutes. This allows the coffee’s pores to expand, thus preparing for decaffeination. Next, the coffee is soaked in a mixture of water and EA. EA is a naturally occurring byproduct when fermenting sugar cane. EA is a selective solvent that selectively bonds to caffeine. When green coffee is soaked in an EA solution, the caffeine migrates via osmosis from the coffee to the EA solution. As the EA becomes saturated with caffeine, the EA is replaced with fresh mixture, ready to absorb more caffeine. This process is repeated until caffeine levels are nearly undetectable.

The coffee is again steamed which removes any residual EA on the bean. Finally, the coffee is dried and prepared for delivery to the warehouse and roastery, where good boy bob carefully roasts each batch fresh with the same care as all of our coffees.

Goodboybob’s decaffeinated coffees meet the same high-quality standards required of all our coffees. Our coffee is decaffeinated using the Sugarcane Ethyl Acetate (EA) process. Using a naturally occurring extract from sugarcane production, EA naturally extracts caffeine from green coffee while retaining all the compounds that contribute to aromatics and beautiful flavor notes. Goodboybob sources our green decaffeinated coffee with care and then artfully roasts each batch with the same attention to detail as all of our coffees. The result is a sweet cup of coffee with notes of vanilla, gingersnap, and simple syrup.
