COLUMBIA GOLDEN HUILA DECAF

34,90 RON 34,90 RON

    This harvest comes from various farmers located at altitudes between 1400-1750 m. It has high complexity for a decaffeinated coffee, mostly due to the natural method. 

    The Sugarcane E.A. process is unlike any other in its ability to retain exceptional flavour while using natural extraction methods. Locally grown sugarcane is fermented to produce Ethyl Acetate compounds. Green (unroasted) coffee is steamed then soaked in water with the EAs which remove the caffeine. The water is drained and the coffee is rinsed, re-steamed (to remove any traces of the EAs) then sent to us for roasting. We find the process produces a more stable, sweeter coffee which, works particularly well for espresso and customers who drink coffee with milk

   For  us is a sweet and pleasant coffee, with an intense dark chocolate finish. Well suited for a creamy espresso and a rich milk based drink, it can be an option for filter method too, if full bodied is an option.

  •    We recommend that you buy fresh coffee beans and grind them on demand to prepare your beverage. Coffee is a product susceptible to rapid oxidation, this process is accelerated by grinding for the simple reason that grinding increases the surface that is exposed to oxygen.

    • FRENCH PRESS ESPRO

      GEAR USED: 

      Espro Press P3 18 oz:

      Ratio 1/16.5

      300 ml water

      18 g in

      265 g out

      4 min brew time

      Temp 94-96 C

      Target EY 18-20%

      Grind size 700-900 microns

      When we brew French Press we aim for the balance between sweetness and body. The grind size is finer than regular french press recipes, one of the reason being the micro filters Espro Press uses ( which we highly recommend). If you have a really basic filter in your french press you should grind coarser and extend your brew time. 

      First step is pouring around 80 grams of water over the grinded coffee, in circular moves,  trying to wet all the coffee so it makes contact with the hot water and starts blooming. This should take around 15 seconds, wait for extra 25 seconds and pour the rest of the hot water, in a circular move, so you constantly wet all the coffee particles that tend to stay afloat. The aim is to extract as even as possible the coffee particles, keeping them immersed in the hot water. Finish the extraction at minute 4 and try to move the coffee in a coffee server as it can keep extracting in the press.
