Regular price $17.00 SALE

We’re thrilled to bring you another stellar decaf, a coffee we are truly proud to feature along side our other great coffees. This coffee is part of our importer’s “Origin Select” program, in which they select the coffee BEFORE decaffeination in order to choose a quality coffee representative of its origin. While most decaf coffee is chosen simply to keep costs low (due to costs added by the processing), thus sacrificing quality, this coffee is instead chosen for quality’s sake. The coffee is then decaffeinated using the natural “ethyl acetate” method using a solvent derived from sugar cane, which is grown locally in Colombia, thus allowing processing to happen locally instead of in Europe. This helps balance the higher cost of choosing a better coffee.  Finally, this method is not only natural, but has proven to preserve much of the character of the original coffee. 

We Taste: Toffee, lemon, & cane sugar.

Best Decaf Ever

I’m a coffee blogger and a certified coffee snob. I love trying new coffees. I don’t drink much decaf but I’ve started wanting to drink coffee in the evening and let me tell you how amazing this decaf is. It’s so good I wish caffeinated coffee tasted like this. I can’t believe it’s decaf. Sometimes I put a scoop or two of the decaf in my regular coffee to make it taste better. It’s so smooth and has a wonderful full flavor. I will continue to purchase this decaf!

Good coffee

I liked the Columbia decaf better than the regular caf Burundi I also ordered.

Colombia Decaf

My wife and I tend to end up at Quills in the evening and naturally go for this Colombian decaf I have grown to love this coffee--as it cools it is very juicy and flavorful. It's a great coffee period.
