Decadent Decaf was founded in 2015 by Guy, Richard, Greg and Laura - UK coffee importing & roasting veterans sick of the poor decaf choice that was available and determined to do something about it.
We roast only 7 decafs and the occasional guest coffee all year round - so there's no coffee waiting "on the shelf" - ensuring great tasting freshly roasted decaffeinated coffee that week direct from our little roastery a mile from the sea in West Sussex.
