Year after year we have always gone to the same supplier for decaf. Why?! You can barely tell it's decaffeinated! This decaf demonstrates the hard work of producers and importers to bring high-quality decaf coffees to the market; coffees are cupped and selected at origin based on their quality and suitability to undergo the Ethyl Acetate (EA) process. This is where the green coffee is soaked in EA, a product derived from fermented sugar-cane; a process which is chemical free and leaves only 0.1-0.3% caffeine behind. Other decaffeination processes often remove a large percentage of flavour compounds, but the EA process retains these. 

The first thing which hits on the aroma is a rich molasses note. This follows into the cup,  bringing a deep treacle sweetness that persists throughout. A spiced pumpkin pie note brings both sweetness and a slightly savoury element, paired with a malt biscuit component of cookie butter. A subtle acidity is provided by presence of orange.
