For our Roasters Choice Decaf coffee subscription 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 subscription destination is from Huehuetenango, Guatemala and has a syrupy mouthfeel with notes of red apple, chocolate orange and black treacle.

The decaffeination process, when using chemicals often masks any positive flavours in the coffee, however the use of Carbon dioxide through charcoal filtering allows for a clarity to the flavour and structure that is rare for decaffeinated coffees. The heavy body and great balance of its chocolate and citrus flavours means it can be brewed perfectly as both an espresso and filter. The Primavera Family lot is named after the importers who support each farmer both financially and logistically, and despite frequently improving their quality, some coffees aren’t strong enough to be sold as single origin. This is where Primavera steps in to purchase the coffees for a high quality and traceable blend whilst still allowing the farmers opportunities to reinvest this money into improvements on their farms.

We recommend you endeavor to receive your decaf coffee subscription 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 subscription 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.
