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.

Blind Pig meets Paper Tiger❤️

Been mixing these 2 for years now- who knew pigs and tigers were so compatible?

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.

paper tiger

I love everyone of your coffees except this one. Honestly . Its tastes like dirty dish water. Maybe try decaffing a different bean like the quonnie or fireside instead. It might yeild a better tasting coffee. I need to go to decaf for a while and I was hoping the paper tiger would do it but I guess not.

Great tasting coffee. We order it for the flavor, not because its decaf. Highly recommend!
