Additional Information

About the Farm & Coffee:
This coffee represents the work of more than 50 producers who are committed to
quality and excellence. Coffee from La Serrania is carefully hand-sorted and processed at each individual farm, with special attention paid to the drying process to ensure consistency, uniformity, and a clean cup profile. La Serranía Decaf is a Natural EA Decaf Coffee.

The decaffeination process at this plant uses ethyl acetate derived 100% from sugar cane mixed with mountain water, together removing 99.7% of the caffeine present.
The beauty of the Natural EA process is that it helps preserve most of the original flavors of the coffee while adding fruity notes and some complexity to the cup.

It's definitely not your regular decaf!
