We are thrilled to bring you this amazingly delicious, full bodied, flavorful decaf 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 enviroment 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 the 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!

Great taste, aromatic, delicious!

I've been sampling Swiss water process decaf for years so I was intrigued by the sugar process you use an actually prefer it. I've never tasted decaf like this. It's amazing!

Give me more!

Really like this decaffeinated coffee for its flavor. I think I could actually drink too much Dave’s Coffee so a decaf option like Paper Tiger is vital for my survival and all day coffee enjoyment. Now I find myself wishing there were more decaf flavor options, like a decaf Blind Pig.

Mix it up

Delicious - we blend the Decaf with Quonnie Roasted - half and half mixed - very flavorful. Thanks so much!
