Colombia: Cauca Decaf

Colombia: Cauca Decaf

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: Nougat, lemon, brown sugar.

Colombia: Cauca Decaf

a decaf that is not over roasted (burnt)

Like their other roasts, Quills doesn't over roast/burn its decaf either. All other roasters that I have found always over roast their decaf even if they don't over roast their normal one.

I only drink decaf at home, and Quills' decaf is one of my favorites! I enjoy trying new beans so I shop around, but always come back to Quills when I want super high quality I can count on.
