Just one look and taste of Barriques Decaf, and you know we’re coming from a very different place than other specialty roasters. We buy better beans because we’re determined that ALL our customers enjoy great coffee – crisp, rich and satisfying, and with ‘taste of place’ only possessed by sustainably-grown heirloom Arabica.
These beans are decaffeinated by the Mountain Water Process, the same natural decaffeination as Swiss Water. The decaffeination plant is new, with updated processes and controls that protect coffee flavor. We craft roast decaf the same way as our other coffees – in small batches with careful attention to the nuances that signal peak flavor development. Our Decafs are delicious, with cup quality, intensity and flavor to match our other specialty coffees!
This coffee is carefully sourced to withstand the extreme pressures of the natural decaffeination process resulting in natural flavor retention that is true of the bean. It is from an organically certified cooperative of nearly 2100 smallholders in the surrounding Oaxacan coffee regions of Costa, Sierra Sur, Mixteca, Cañada and Papaloapan. It is a beautiful representation of the clean, mellow, comforting flavors of Mexican coffee.
