El Vergel estate made the decision to produce a very high-quality decaffeinated coffee, after seeing many coffees that are used in Colombia to produce decaf are of a lower quality. This decaf offering begins with quality coffee production first from their farm El Vergel - which then allows them to create a decaffeinated product that, despite the process, does not lose its sweetness in the cup. That decision, in our mind, is evident in the cup - becoming one of the best decaf coffees we’ve ever tasted. 

Under the EA sugarcane process, when the coffee is received it is first submitted to a condition of water and steam. This elevates the moisture contained and swells the bean in order to facilitate the extraction of caffeine. It is at this point that the bean experiences an ethyl acetate wash, which dissolves the caffeine. The beans are then cleaned with water, followed by steam, to clean the innermost portions of the bean. Finally, the beans are dried until reaching moisture similar to what they had prior to the process. This method avoids excessive heat or pressure, which can radically disrupt a green bean's cellular structure.

 

We taste: red apple, caramel, date, cinnamon, milk chocolate

a decaf that is not over roasted (burnt)

Like their other roasts, Quills doesn't over roast/burn its decaf either. All other roasters that I have found always over roast their decaf even if they don't over roast their normal one.

I only drink decaf at home, and Quills' decaf is one of my favorites! I enjoy trying new beans so I shop around, but always come back to Quills when I want super high quality I can count on.
