Do you drink decaf?
Often when showing people around the roastery they ask about the Decaf coffee we have.
Here are the most common questions and my answers:
Do you ever drink the Decaf?
To be honest not very often – mainly because I am usually frothing over something else like the TBone Special or some new single origin we are trying but occasionally in the afternoons I will have a Decaf Flatty.
The coffee snobs are going to smash me but I honestly think freshly ground Decaf tastes really nice.
How much caffeine is in it?
We use the Swiss Water decaf and they remove 99.9% of the caffeine from the green beans before they are shipped to us and roasted.
How do they remove the caffeine?
They use water and heat.
