moD(e)caf Blend
Our moD(e)caf is half caf blend. For those of you sensitive to caffeine or looking to drink coffee late this coffee is for you. A blend of a caffeinated pulped natural Brazil and an exceptional naturally processed and decaffeinated Colombian coffee from wonder producer Jario Arcillia. This Colombian Castillo is frighteningly good, think tropical fruit punch and colombian sugar (panela), this is not your grandmas decaf.
This coffee was carefully hand-picked in order to select only the ripest cherries and then hand sorted to remove any defects. The coffee was sundried on raised beds in temperature-controlled conditions until the ideal moisture content is achieved. This decaffeination process is unique. The caffeine is extracted from the bean using sugar cane and water which enhances sweetness while maintaining coffee attributes. And with only 20% of the blend caffeinated you can sleep easy in the knowledge that this coffee will not get the blood pumping through your veins.

Caffeine
 

Caffeine runs throughout the entire caffeine plant, being stored in the stem, leaves, flowers, coffee fruit, and the seeds inside the coffee fruit. The highest concentration of caffeine is in the seeds (beans). Caffeine is bitter tasting and toxic to many insects when consumed in large doses relevant to their size. The levels of caffeine in coffee plants vary by species. Over 98 percent of the coffee consumed worldwide comes from just two varieties; Arabica and Robusta. Arabica coffee has around half the caffeine content of robusta. Because robusta contains so much more caffeine, the plant is able to survive at lower altitudes where a greater number of pests live. Another use of caffeine in coffee plants is to protect itself from competing plants. When the leaves and cherries fall to the ground, they release small amounts of caffeine into the soil that can inhibit the growth of other seeds, thus giving their seedlings a competitive advantage. The flowers of the coffee plant also produce nectar that contains low doses of caffeine, which bizarrely serves to attract pollinators. So in the insect world just like its human counterpart there are some that are repelled by caffeine while others are naturally drawn to it.
