Decaf

This is the most expensive decaf coffee we've ever brought in at $6.03/lb FOB. Kind of a gamble given it's cost but it was consistently the top scoring decaf we sampled of all available decaf coffees this season. Staying true to our core values meant we had to buy it. We're only here for the best. Red Honey is the drying process of the cherries where the skin is removed but the pulp remains on the coffee seed, it imparts a fruit forward depth to a coffee, and in this application it's remarkable. Raspberry acidity, deep sweetness like praline and a cherry cola vibe. This is an noteworthy example of how good a decaffeinated coffee can be if you put in the work. Processed by the fine folks at Swiss Water Process and packaged in Grain Pro for extended enjoyment. We are proud to offer one of the finest decaf programs out there.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
Bean Source Country: Peru
Peruvian specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse microclimates and high elevations in the Andean mountains. These factors contribute to the beans' unique flavor profile, typically featuring bright acidity, medium body, and subtle notes of fruit, chocolate, and floral undertones.
Bean Source Region: Cajamarca
Cajamarca, a region in northern Peru, is renowned for producing high-quality coffee due to the region's high elevation, fertile soil, and favorable climate. Cajamarca's coffee-growing areas are located in the Andes Mountains, where the elevation ranges from 900 to 2,300 meters above sea level. This high altitude slows the ripening process of coffee cherries, allowing them to develop more complex flavors. The soil in Cajamarca is rich in organic matter and minerals, providing essential nutrients for coffee plants. Additionally, the region's climate—characterized by distinct wet and dry seasons, along with moderate temperatures—promotes healthy growth and reduces the risk of diseases and pests. Coffee from Cajamarca often has bright acidity, vibrant floral aromas, and rich sweetness, making it a sought-after specialty-grade coffee.
Decaf
Decaffeinated coffee has undergone a process to remove most of the caffeine content while preserving its flavor and aroma. There are three primary decaffeination methods. The solvent-based method involves soaking coffee beans in water to dissolve the caffeine, followed by adding a solvent, such as methylene chloride or ethyl acetate, to bind to the caffeine molecules selectively. The Swiss Water Process (SWP) is a chemical-free method that relies on the principles of solubility and osmosis. Finally, the carbon dioxide method involves using supercritical carbon dioxide to extract caffeine from the coffee beans. Decaf coffee typically retains most of the flavor and aroma of regular coffee but with a significantly reduced caffeine content (around 2-3%).
