For our Roasters Choice Decaf offering we look to find high quality coffees that have been cared for during farming and decaffeination processes, allowing for the coffees natural characteristics to shine through, giving each coffee the same flavour and aroma qualities you find in caffeinated coffees. Our decaf offerings are full of complexity and structure which some decaffeinated coffees do not possess as they are often not given the time or attention they deserve.
Our current Roasters Choice Decaf coffee is from Caucan, Colombia and has a rich chocolatey mouthfeel with notes of red apple, orange and honey.
The Popayan Reserve is a regional lot from the department of Cauca, Colombia. This region was chosen as it is conducive to producing coffees with good body and sweetness. Currently, 67 select farms contribute to this regional lot and it provides employment for over 400 people. The decaffeination process for this coffee is unique. The caffeine is extracted using a natural by-product of sugar cane and water. This process avoids excessive temperatures seen in other decaffeination processes and leaves a coffee with enhanced sweetness which roasts and tastes much more like the original, caffeinated version.
We recommend you endeavor to receive your coffee as beans, as it will aid your coffee in staying fresher for longer and will keep those flavours and aromas that make that coffee distinct and vibrant locked in. If this isn’t possible we can grind your beans to suit your preferred brew method. Your coffee will be accompanied by a detailed leaflet outlining tasting notes, historical backdrops, environmental landscapes and inspiring and innovative stories of the coffees journey from the farm to your brew at home.
