Even after 98% of the caffeine has left the bean the original flavour profile remains in tact. This is a result of the careful process whereby the beans are steamed and moistened to remove the skin and soften the beans. Ethyl Acetate (a natural byproduct from the sugar cane industry) is then added which is recirculated until only 98% of the caffeine remains. The beans are then steamed to ensure that no ethyl Acetate remains on the bean. Through our own experiments we have found a slighter longer roast curve brings out a more complex flavour keeping the sweetness and acidity in harmony, whilst also adding a velvety body. Many neutrals who have tried this cant even tell that it is a decaf!
