FLAVOR NOTES: With this coffee, we taste Roasted Nuts, Green Apple, Sesame. It is best brewed using an Espresso Machine, Pour Over or the Aeropress.
The CO2Process, developed by Kurt Zosel, similarly extracts just the caffeine chemical but does so with liquid CO2 rather than GCE. In CO2 decaffeination, green beans are immersed in a sealed water container known as an extraction chamber. Liquid CO2 is then forced at a pressure of 1,000 pounds per square inch into the extraction chamber, drawing the caffeine out of the green beans and dissolving it. Once the caffeine is successfully extracted, the caffeine-rich CO2 is transferred from the extraction chamber to a low pressure absorption chamber that allows the CO2 to return to a gaseous, caffeine-free state. The CO2 process is a natural, safe process that preserves the beans’ innate chemical makeup. The result is wonderfully, rich, flavorful coffee.
