NEW! Peruvian Decaf
Roast profile: Light/Medium
This is one great decaf coffee! The roast gives a very smooth and flavorful taste with good body. For a decaf I was surprised how the inherent properties of the original coffee come through in the cup. All the decaf drinkers out there will love the taste of this coffee as a drip or espresso shot…

DECAF PERU ORGANIC NORTE ROYAL SELECT WATER PROCESS is curated from lots selected based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated. During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again.
