Decaf Fincas Mustafá, Castillo
Read time: under 1 minute.
Suppose you enjoy the taste of coffee but don't want the caffeine. In that case, you might want to try this decaffeinated coffee from the Mustafá family. Fincas Mustafá is a single varietal coffee seed called Castillo and was processed using ethyl-acetate decaffeination. The process of decaffeination begins with sugarcane. The sugarcane is processed into molasses, fermented to create ethanol, and mixed with acetic acid to create ethyl acetate. The coffee is steamed and then soaked in ethyl acetate solution multiple times. The caffeine molecules bond with the ethyl acetate and are ultimately removed and washed away with the solution. Considering the amount of caffeine you consume is essential, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the flavor profiles you seek. Luckily, this process removes 97% of the caffeine in your beverage, allowing you to enjoy the taste you love without the added stimulation. We've intentionally sourced this coffee for our only decaffeinated option because of its structured caramel sweetness and crisp ripe fruit characteristics.
