Downshift Decaf is our breakfast-type Decaf blend. We use natural decafs from the New World, Africa and the Pacific Islands to build a blend with crisp, energizing aroma, medium body and lots of bright fruit notes.
Just one look and taste of Barriques decaf coffee, 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.
Our 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!
