Decaf coffee drinkers are a finicky bunch, and their always on the lookout for the best decaf coffee available. They’ll do anything. Decaf coffee drinkers are, well, a bit desperate.
I know, because I am one.
I still drink caffeinated coffee as well, and even half-cafs. But the thing I’ve realized – is it another I’m older thing? – is that I just need to regulate the caffeine intake. Slow the dose if you know what I’m saying.
I go through phases. Lots of caffeine, followed by a shut down, then an ease back in, then back on the drip. But wherever I am in this never ending journey, a good decaf coffee is just necessary to have in the quiver.
So when I came across the Peruvian Swiss-Water processed decaf that we carry, I must say that I was pretty excited. As someone who has been on the search for the best decaf coffee I could find, I really think this one is right up at the top.
Sure, sure. I’m biased.
But really. I’ve shared this particular decaf coffee bean with many people, and most are truly impressed – instant converts.
Since I know the struggle of finding a good decaf I can honestly say that, well, your search may well be over. Just try this Peruvian decaf coffee and let me know if you agree.
After all, just because you’ve switched to decaf, doesn’t mean your taste buds have left the building.
Chicama Decaf from Peru
Chicama is known as the longest left hand break in the world. We thought it would make a great name for this decaf coffee bean from Peru since there’s just something mellow and fitting about pairing the two.
Just grabbing a cup of Chicama decaf is sure to bring your imagination to these long lefts each morning.
Best Decaf Coffee for Half-Caff
And for you half-caff people, this peruvian decaf coffee bean mixes really well with our Central American coffees in particular. I’ve found that the decaf + Pavones is a real household favorite.
Making half-caff Americanos is pretty simple with the espresso machine. I keep a tin of decaf pre-ground and whatever bean I’m mixing in the top hopper. A scoop of decaf with some fresh ground Costa Rican coffee or Nicaraguan coffee and I’m ready to go.
Sure there are other ways to go, but this is my current set up and it has worked for a while.
So what’s your best decaf coffee? Which one would you put us up against. I must say, after all the research I’ve done, I’m pretty comfortable going up against just about any other decaf out there.
