New Arrival: Spotlight On Decaf Organic Mexico

Wow! This year’s Decaf Organic Mexico starts with a rich, sweet aroma: a little citrus, a little floral, a lot of chocolate. We all love the soft, smooth mouthfeel, but the rich, well-balanced flavor really surprised us. It took us several rounds of tasting to tease out the different notes: lively herbal/citrus, like lemon verbena, rich cocoa or fudge, and candied nut, like almond praline. The flavors combine into a rich, flavorful and satisfying cup of coffee that made one of our roasters exclaim, “Are you sure this is decaf?”

Decaf coffee has a bad rep. Memes like, “Death before Decaf” proliferate on social media sites, and many assume giving up caffeine means giving up flavor. The reason for this misconception is the process to remove caffeine from green coffee beans also removes flavor compounds. In well-processed decafs, most of the flavor is returned to the beans, but even the best decaf coffees lose a little flavor to the process. That's why we only buy decaf coffee from companies that start with high quality, flavorful beans and only use water process decaffeination methods. We make sure all our decaf coffees, like this year's Decaf Organic Mexico, are both decaffeinated and delicious. READ MORE...
