So good, you won’t believe it’s decaf

Let us convince you to love decaf. Instead of the stereotypical tasting notes of chemical afterburn, Placebo carries a rich, creamy flavor. We use a method of sugarcane extract to naturally remove the caffeine from our beans before we roast them, resulting in an uncompromising flavor so good, your brain and your taste buds might have trouble believing there’s no caffeine in this cup. But trust us, there’s not. Instead, taste the sweetness of cherry and caramelized sugar all wrapped up in a full, creamy body.

Sugarcane Extraction

Sugarcane decaf is often referred to as naturally decaffeinated coffee, due to the use of natural and organic materials to extract the caffeine. During the process, sugarcane (an abundant crop in Colombia) is fermented into molasses to create ethanol, which is mixed with acid to create an E.A compound. E.A is naturally found in wine, beer, fruit, and other foods and beverages. After the green coffee beans are soaked in water and steamed, they are washed with the compound, dissolving the caffeine. The beans are then washed again with water before being dried, preserving the full integrity of favor and resulting in an unparalleled, caffeine-less final product.
