  • About this Coffee: Marmalade Decaf is named in honor of one of our favorite SLC neighborhoods.This single origin Colombia is produced by brothers Elias and Shady Bayter from El Vergel Estate. The farm had its beginning in avocado production in the mid nineties, and by 2006 they began to cultivate coffee. Today, Elias and Shady are recognized for their visionary coffee processing techniques. Ethyl acetate (EA) decaffeination is a natural process that uses a sugar cane-derived solvent. The green coffee is steamed to open the pores, then submerged in ethyl acetate, causing caffeine molecules to bind with ethyl acetate molecules and migrate through the beans’ cell membrane. The beans are then steamed once again to extract any remaining ethyl acetate. This process removes 99.9% of the caffeine content. Condor decaf was sourced through our partnership with Forest Coffee as part of their Condor projects , which aims to enhance coffee quality and support coffee growing communities.
