Canopy, Hoist, Decaf (set) - CDW

This set of finely curated coffees represents the best of the Bow Truss lineup. Exclusively for CDW, this set includes our Decaf Ethiopia Sidama, our Canopy Blend, and our Hoist Espresso Blend.

Decaf Ethiopia Sidama - Kenebata Natural
This delicious decaf comes from a variety of dry-mill processing stations throughout the Sidama region. The coffee is sent to a decaf processing plant in Germany, where it is decaffeinated using the Methyl-Chloride method. The green coffee is steamed, which brings a majority of the caffeine to the surface of the bean. The Methyl-Chloride solvent is then applied, which absorbs a majority of the bean’s caffeine. This process decaffeinates the coffee while preserving the delicate oils, which give the coffee its flavor. This process of decaffeination can sound frightening to the consumer. Often, an alternative method of Swiss Water Processing (SWP) is sold as a more health friendly option. In fact, SWP uses an almost identical (albeit organic) chemical known as Ethyl Acetate to absorb caffeine. The results of both processes leave TRACE AMOUNTS of the respective chemicals upon completion. This level is SEVERAL HUNDRED TIMES less that what the FDA deems appropriate for human consumption. Additionally, the result of the Methyl-Chloride process is much often a tastier cup with no health risks to the consumer. So relax, kick back and enjoy!
