Popayan Decaf Coffee

CHOCOLATE BUTTERY CARAMEL

This exquisite decaf coffee gives you the keys to your caffeine-free dream life with its chocolate, caramel, and buttery notes. Produced by selected farms in Colombia's Popayan region, it is then roasted in Sydney by the brilliant roasters at Stitch Coffee. Coffee is first brought from growers in dry parchment, it is then alter milled at Popayan and transported to Caldas to be decaffeinated. This is significant as many decaf coffees would undergo the decaffeination process in various countries overseas, however, the Popayan coffee can be decaffeinated at origin.

About the Roaster

Stitch Coffee

Stitch Coffee assist cafes in up-skilling their baristas and teams, teaching them how to extract the perfect espresso and brew a delicious pour-over. Their love for coffee is fed by the daily home brewers and the cafes that serve their coffee. Stitch continue to source coffee ethically from around the world and ensure that they have the ability to communicate this with the community. They're continuously evolving their buying practices and fostering relationships with importers and farmers to ensure a healthy future for coffee.

Natural Decaf Coffee

Sugarcane

Popayan Decaf Coffee by Stitch Coffee is a Sugarcane Decaf. The Sugarcane Decaf process results in a delicious, subtly sweet coffee bean. The process itself begins with (you guessed it), sugarcane! Sugarcane is used to make molasses, which is then fermented to make ethanol. The ethanol is then mixed with acetic acid (vinegar) to create a natural compound called ethyl acetate. Before the compound is applied to the beans, the beans themselves are first steamed at low pressure. This helps the coffee beans swell up and attain the moisture level ideal for caffeine extraction. The coffee beans are soaked in water along with the ethyl acetate. The ethyl acetate then bonds with the naturally occurring salts inside the coffee beans, which extracts the caffeine, resulting in a delicious decaf coffee that is 97% caffeine free.

FAQ

  • How can I get free shipping?

    We agree, free shipping rocks! Simply add two or more bags of coffee to your cart and free shipping will be applied to your entire order 🙂

  • What does natural decaffeination mean?

    Natural decaffeination means that the caffeine in a coffee has been removed using all natural processes. The leading natural decaffeination processes currently being used are Swiss Water® Process, Mountain Water Process, Sugarcane Process, and CO2 Process. All our decaf coffees are naturally decaffeinated 😃

  • How long does roasted decaf coffee last?

    An unopened bag of roasted decaf coffee beans can last for up to 2-3 months, less if the beans have been pre-ground for you. The ideal time to enjoy your roasted decaf coffee is 7-21 days after the roast date, as roasted beans experience a 'degassing' phase after they has been roasted, during which time carbon dioxide is naturally released from the beans.

    The one-way valve that is common in most coffee packaging allows carbon dioxide to be released from the bag, while preventing oxygen and moisture from entering it. Once the degassing phase ends the beans begin absorbing oxygen. This process causes a slow and gradual decline in freshness and aroma.

    Personal taste and storage methods will also affect the freshness of decaf coffee beans. Coffee should be stored in an airtight bag or container, out of direct sunlight, in a cool dry area. 

  • How much caffeine is in decaf coffee?

    The amount of residual caffeine in decaf coffee depends on the process that was used to decaffeinate the green coffee beans. We have found that the Swiss Water® Process and Mountain Water Process result in a 99% caffeine free coffee, while the Sugarcane Process and CO2 Process result in a 97% caffeine free coffee.
