Decaf Colombia Magdalena

Decaf Colombia Magdalena – Single Origin Espresso

12 oz/ 340g

Almond Pineapple Raisin

This single origin decaf coffee was decaffeinated at the Descafecol plant in Manizales, Colombia, through a special process using water and ethyl acetate from local sugar cane. Ethyl acetate’s low boiling point enables gentle caffeine extraction and avoids excessive heat and pressure so the natural structure of the green coffee bean cells is retained. The result is an exceptionally complex decaf coffee.

Here are the parameters that we’ve been using with our latest Decaf Epic Espresso (parameters for an 18g VST Precision Filter Basket):

  • Timer for 28 – 32 seconds
  • Pull 37 – 39 grams of liquid espresso
