Story Behind the Name: Our smooth decaf offering will be the perfect ending to your day. On June 7, 1870, Russellville was officially incorporated. Prior to this, Russellville was known as Chactas Prairie. This roast uses a fair-trade bean imported from Mexico. 1870 was the year that Russellville was officially incorporated as a town, and ever since it’s been growing into what it is today. It is also the year that Currier & Ives published The Arkansas Traveler print that later became famous. The music sheet on our decaf roast is an excerpt from the Arkansas Traveler song that was once the Arkansas state song. How does this connect to Russellville? The original painting was done right here in the area!
Process Information: The process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of E.A., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the E.A. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavor integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all. (The beans will contain a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.)
