Decafs

Green coffee is decaffeinated before roasting. This process changes the color of the green coffee: it varies from light brown (Natural and CO-2) to green-brown (MC and Swiss Water Process -SWP- decafs). There is another decaf we list as WP, Water Process, which is a water filtration method similar to Swiss Water, but performed at a plant in Mexico. The arrival of decafs always follows the main crop of a coffee by some months, since the coffee needs to be shipped to the decaffeination plant. Oddly, there are only a few such plants in the world, so decaf coffee has to travel a long way usually from origin, to plant and then to the buyer's country. This adds to the cost too, so decafs are often a bit pricier.

  • Ethiopia Dumerso-Kochore SWP Decaf

    Two Yirga Cheffes, two different processes, this one tastes more typically Ethiopia than decaf.

The DP element brings mixed berry, tropical fruits, and hefty body, balanced by black tea, florals, and citrus highlights from the washed ingredient. A complex cup of coffee! City to Full City.
