We are thrilled to bring you this amazingly delicious, full bodied, flavorful decaffeinated coffee from Colombia.

The sugar process is a natural process that not only maintains the astonishing integrity of the coffees flavor, but also allows us to offer decaffeinated coffee that follows an integrated vertical supply chain, as the growing, processing, and even the full decaffeination process all happens at the source in Colombia. Sugar cane, which is fermented in water to decaffeinate our coffee, also grows abundantly in Colombia. So, it makes good sense all around for the environment and produces the best tasting decaf you've ever had!

Here's a quick overview of how the coffee gets decaffeinated before it arrives to us for roasting:

  • Unroasted coffee is gently steamed for thirty minutes to open the pores of the coffee to allow the caffeine to be extracted.
  • The beans are then placed in a solution made from water and fermented sugar cane.
  • The solution bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acids within the coffee, allowing for the extraction of caffeine.
  • The solution is then drained (taking with it the caffeine) and refilled with fresh solution. This continues for eight hours.
  • After the last of the caffeine has been removed, the beans are gently steamed again to remove any residue of the solution, and then dried.

We're confident that you'll love our natural sugar process decaf just as much as we do!

Small bits of stone or concrete may be found in patio dried coffee. Check carefully to avoid damage to grinders.

Decaf drinker

I prefer decaf coffee, as do several friends and family members. Paper Tiger is the best choice for decaf coffee, which is almost indistinguishable from regular coffee. I get compliments on it all the time. However, I wish the ordering page made a more explicit choice over whether I'm ordering whole beans or ground.

Best coffee ever! And it’s naturally processed!

Excellent coffee! And knowing it’s naturally processed and tastes this good makes all the difference. Wouldn’t drink anything else.

Yummy coffee

I’m so enjoying the Decaf coffee. Lattes, pour overs, French press - doesn’t matter - all so delicious!

Delicious, flavorful decaf

We have searched far and wide for a decaf coffee that doesn’t lack on taste. Dave’s decaf is both rich and delicious and completely caffeine free. We enjoy it every morning.
