Great Decaf is Worth the Bother
I’ve sometimes heard decaffeinated coffee referred to as the “why bother?” coffee. I’ve never understood this comment.
Decaf coffees can lose their flavor during the decaffeination process. But a good decaf coffee should offer all the flavors and aromas one would expect from a regular cup of coffee. It takes the right bean to withstand the process to ensure the flavor and nuances of the coffee stays intact.
Our Decaf Sumatra goes through an innovative natural decaffeination process. Using carbon dioxide and ultra-pure water, we’re able to remove the caffeine in the shortest amount of time – leaving all the flavor and aroma intact. And the beans we use are perfect for maintaining the herbal, spicy, full-bodied flavor one would expect from a Sumatran coffee.
This process and these beans are definitely worth the bother. On a recent trip to Sumatra, I met several farmers we purchase coffee from. The amount of care and passion they put into their daily lives, their families and their coffee farms was very humbling. With all of the work we do to ethically source our coffees and all of the relationships we have built with these farmers, it would be a shame to put the coffee through a decaf process that removed its flavor and liveliness.
So, the next time you want a cup of decaf coffee, make up a press of Decaf Sumatra. You won’t be disappointed!
