Decaf drinkers stand tall and proud! Really, you deserve to be celebrated. You love coffee so much you want to drink it all day and you know how to avoid those nasty jitters. You also know your coffee, demanding a clean, smooth, flavourful cup. Many of my drinkers cut their favourite caffeinated brew with decaf, or save this for a soothing evening drink to ease them into slumber. Because, seriously, don't we all deserve to end our busy days with something full bodied and soothing?
Beans to be decaffeinated are selected based on their water content, the state of the energy of the water in the bean, and their density, the critical trifecta for both roasting and decaffeinating. Focus on this holy trinity allows regional tasting notes to withstand the decaffeination process.
There are two ways to decaffeinate coffee, using either water or chemicals. Swiss or Mountain Water is a process that naturally removes 99% of the caffeine from the beans. Because what you take out is just as important as what you leave in.
Beans are best ground just prior to use. You will receive whole beans unless you indicate otherwise. If you would like your beans ground, please specify in the notes section of the checkout. Free shipping on orders of any 4lbs or more.
