This very special decaffeinated coffee comes to us from the mountains of the Chiapas region in the southernmost part of Mexico. Once the coffees from this year's crop from Cuarta Union were evaluated by our importer, this lot was selected to be used as a decaffeinated offering. They chose to use the water process of decaffeination which entails pre-soaking the coffee seeds in water to expand them and extract the caffeine. Then, the coffee is soaked in a solution consisting of the solubles from the coffee but without the caffeine. This allows the caffeine in the soaked seed to be extracted while the inherent character remains intact. Once roasted and brewed, we find pleasant notes of fig bars, caramel, and raisin coupled with a full body and a pleasantly mellow acidity. This coffee tastes so clean and delicious that you might forget your drinking decaf! It’s also great for when you need that late night sipper.
All coffees are available in whole bean only.
