The decaf coffee you've been looking for—full of flavor, this award-winning decaf comes to us directly from our friends at Azahar Coffee in Colombia.
What makes our decaf coffee so good?
Two things—the incredible coffee we start with and the unique sugarcane decaffeinating process. Most decaffeinated coffees use low grade green coffee to start with but ours is sourced through the same farms as our single origin coffees, ensuring it is naturally tasty from the beginning.
Then, it is decaffeinated using the sugarcane process. This natural process begins by fermenting molasses derived from sugarcane to create ethanol which is the base of the wash used to gently extract the caffeine from the bean. In addition, because sugarcane is so readily available in Colombia, this whole process occurs close to the farm, keeping it super fresh by eliminating the numerous back and forth shippings that usually take place.
We find this decaf process produces clean, sweet results. Decaf coffees often get a bad reputation, but this coffee shows that Decaf doesn't mean bad coffee!
