About Us - Decadent Decaf Coffee Co.
Decadent Decaf was founded by a team of really knowledgeable coffee lovers. Our background is coffee sourcing, importing and roasting. Then when we started looking for great tasting decaf, we found very little out there, so we decided to do it ourselves!
Drinking great tasting coffee is what we know best. Alas, decaffeinated coffee has long been the ugly duckling of the coffee world – uncared for and neglected. Most roasters are not passionate about decaf coffee; perhaps, because they have not encountered good quality decaf green beans.
This might stem from the fact that decaf coffee was traditionally produced by using chemical solvents and the result was weak, insipid or bitter coffee.
As a result of this, decaf coffee was commoditised into a low quality coffee “product”. At the same time, the decaffeination process is expensive and so, to keep the prices down, low quality coffees (often old coffee from past crops) were used.
The result: if you put bad coffee in, you’ll get bad coffee out.
Fast forward a few decades and it’s all changed. The decaffeination process, such as the Swiss Water Process, gently removes the caffeine and leaves the coffee flavours in the bean.
At the same time, a few leading coffee pioneers around the world are using high quality green coffee beans for decaffeination. Decaf’s moment has come - Decadent Decaf wants to reinvent decaf and spread the word of great healthy delicious decaf coffee!
Freshly roasted in small batches on the south coast of England, this is as fresh as decaf coffee gets...
