Introducing our new Decadent Decaf Dark Roast Coffee Blend

Drum roll, we are proud to announce, new for 2020, for those who like their coffee big, brash, bold and dark - this one is for you - our very own Decadent Decaf Dark Roast Decaffeinated Coffee.

Our Dark Roast comprisesL

- 40% Indonesia Sumatra Swiss Water Decaf

- 20% Brazil Swiss Water Decaf

- 40% Guatemala Estate CO2 Process Decaf

As Decadent Decaf's answer to classic Italian artisan coffee, we roast this blend to the level of mahogany and the result is a satisfyingly rich and smokey coffee.

This is our first blend comprising Swiss Water Decaf carefully blended with CO2 Decaf to produce our ultimate Decadent Decaf Dark Roast. We hope you like it.

About the CO2 Process of decaffeination:

In science-speak, this is called supercritical fluid extraction. Basically, the process starts with the beans being immersed in carbon dioxide (same gas as in sparkling water) for around 10 hours.

After a thorough soaking, the pressurized CO2 containing dissolved caffeine is removed from the chamber which is returned to atmospheric pressure, allowing the CO2 to evaporate.

This allows the caffeine to be removed using charcoal filters. Again, this process avoids the use of any harmful substances and Decadent Decaf is investigating sourcing premium, great tasting beans using the CO2 Process for the future.

In environmental terms, the CO2 used is in a permanent cycle, rather than vented to atmosphere – there will be some further off-gassing when the beans are removed from the system (no process being perfect), but for the most part, it’s a closed system, which is good news for the environment.
