From Dear Green Coffee:

Our single origin decaf offering is a single-origin blend of coffees selected by cup quality, and grown by multiple small holder producers in the Cauca region. The Sugar Cane Decaffeination process takes place in the origin country, (in this case, Colombia) and works by soaking green coffee in a bath of water and a solvent called ethyl acetate, which is a naturally derived from fermented sugar, among other natural sources.

The solvent bonds to the salts if chlorogenic acid within the coffee, which allows for the extraction of caffeine. The coffee is removed from its bath and steamed at a low pressure to ensure no traces of E.A are left, and the finished product is almost entirely free of caffeine, with only 0.1-0.3% remaining.
