Our quality decaf won Bronze at the Royal Sydney Coffee Awards in 2017 and 2016.
What your are buying here is 500g of 100% Arabica certified Swiss Water Process (SWP) whole bean medium roasted coffee - excellent for Espresso style, plunger, stovetop and even filter coffees.
This is, without doubt, the best Colombian decaf you can buy - we have a reputation of producing the best roasted decaf in Australia.
This coffee is authentic chemical-free Swiss Water Process De-Caffinated coffee.
The caffiene is extracted using a patented process that retains all the flavours of coffee - this occurs in a quality-controlled facility in Canada.
Without doubt the absolute best tasting Decaf on the market - a premium bean sourced coffee from one of the best farms in Colombia - rich, smooth, creamy with the full chocolate finish.
Decaf coffees are significantly darker in the green bean state when compared to traditional coffee beans.
Once roasted, Decaf coffees appear very dark (almost black) and may emit a sheen of oil 2-3 days after roasting.
This dark colour of roasted decaf does not mean the coffee was over-roasted or is stale.
We have developed a reputation for roasting some of the best decaf in Australia and it starts with selecting and using the absolute best quality decaf green beans.
Most roasters struggle to roast decaf as they don't do it very often and it's lighter, darker and different moisture and density to traditional coffees.
For this reason. most roasting companies end up over-roasting their decaf making it bitter and ashy.
Our roasting equipment has finer control of air and temperature enabling us to produce a wonderfully soft heat that really suits the decaf roasting process.
The Swiss Water Decaf company is based in Canada and they operate one of the largest coffee processing plants in the world - their premises are much larger than the biggest sporting arenas.
Swiss Water is a patented process of caffeine removal without the use of dangerous or harsh chemicals.
The Swiss Water Decaf company have some of the world's best expert raw coffee buyers that travel the world evaluating and selecting the best grades of coffee that are then shipped to Canada for processing.
The end product is a raw coffee with around 99% of the caffeine removed in a form that can be fresh roasted by coffee companies to the desired taste and cup profile.
Many coffee roasters hate having to roast Decaf because it's tricky. But I love it......the smell of fresh roasted decaf beats anything........
We roast decaf many times each week - sometimes it's hard to keep up as we have such a big list of Decaf customers.
Please kindly note, roasted Decaf beans will turn oily very quickly - sometimes just a few days. If they are exposed to higher ambient temperatures in transit of storage they will oil up faster.
The oil is nothing to worry about and will not detract from the performance of the coffee.
I always suggest to customers to use decaf within a reasonably short timeframe as it does not seem to age with the same durability as non-decaf coffees.
My favourite bean18 January 2018I absolutely love these beans. They are the best tasting decaf I have had & I am totally addicted. Can’t recommend them enough
Made for coffee lovers17 October 2016Definitely a constant in any coffee lover's collection. A great coffee experience without feeling the guilt and buzz of caffeine. Smooth and delicious. This is also the first de-caf coffee that I actually liked and ended up loving.
Smoothness and Guilt Free16 August 2016Produces a well rounded,smooth and relatively strong coffee that is indistinguishable from normal caffeine blends.Great for those times (before bed) when you want a great coffee without the kick of caffeine.
fabulous, cannot live without it!By: meg on 6 January 2016I only have one cup a day but i make it a good one! It's the freshest coffee you will ever find. I'm allergic to full strength but this is absolutely fine, tastes amazing. Best coffee I've ever tasted and that's including full roasts! Its a morning ritual for me. Been getting it for a few years now and it's always just beautiful. Thanks Jeff. Highly recommended.
Decaf heaven!By: Shannon Dooley on 27 October 2015From the moment we opened the bag, the aroma was heavenly and the first cup, oh so memorable! After drinking Lavazza decaf for many years (which we though was nice), this was a massive step up. The difference is clearly being freshly roasted and freshly ground. The fact that it's Swiss Water processed is a bonus, no chemicals = happier livers. Very happy decaf customers!
