This coffee is decaffinated using ethyl acetate which is a very safe naturally occurring solvent. It selectively removes the caffeine from the coffee while leaving all the other tasty flavour compounds. Ethyl acetate occurs in ripening fruit and is a highly volatile compound meaning that none of it remains after the coffee has been roasted.
