Folks drink decaf coffee rarely by personal choice. Usually it is a health issue that doesn’t allow the coffee lover to consume as much caffeine or a time too late in the day. Why punish them with sub-optimal coffee?
Nate’s Decaf Sumatra is a smooth, medium dark roast that makes a great pour over. It can be combined with any regular roast to create a personalized Half-Caf, including the Sumatra Mandheling for a matching darkness. Try it with our Yo! Wake Up to give the roast a bit of baker’s chocolate flavor.
From the Supplier: “Royal Select Water Decaf coffee is sourced from lots that the Royal team has selected based on cupping evaluations. After selection, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffee’s particular flavor.”
