Rich and chocolatey with sweet caramel notes. You won't believe it's decaf!

If you're fed up of having to "slum it" with decaf that just doesn't taste like proper coffee whenever you need to drink decaf, then you're going to love this!

This is a single origin speciality decaf coffee, from the Cocafelol co-op in the mountains of the Ocotepeque Department in western Honduras.

These single-origin Swiss Water decaffeinated coffee beans are grown at an altitude of 1100-1400m, the varietals are Caturra and Pacas. The Speciality Coffee Association score for this coffee is 83, and these coffee beans are Organic, Fairtrade & Swiss Water decaffeinated.

This coffee has been decaffeinated using the Swiss water decaf process, this is a decaffeination process that removes most of the caffeine, without stripping away the taste.

How it Tastes

Yes this is a decaf, but no, it doesn't taste like muck! In fact, it tastes incredible! Try it on someone who loves their coffee, don't let them know it's decaf until they've tasted it, and I'll bet they'll be amazed!

To the most obvious flavour I can relate the taste of this decaf single origin to, is milk chocolate & caramel. In fact, it reminds me of one of my favourite chocolates which I won't name, but it rhymes with Padburies Fairy Silk Caramel.

If you're new to flavour notes in speciality coffee, please note that when we're talking about taste notes we're not talking about flavours that are so strong that you think they're artificially flavoured, they're usually relatively subtle.

If you have a really well-developed palate then you may detect really strong flavour notes, but if you don't to begin with, stick with it.

Keep tasting different coffees, and don't mask them with milk and sugar (if you're making milkies and/or adding sugar just taste the coffee each time you brew before you add anything to it), you'll find that your palate develops over time and you start to taste things in your coffee that you didn't previously notice.

Cocafelol Co-Operative

Cocafelol is a co-operative of around three hundred smallholder producers within the Ocotepeque department in the west of Honduras.

This is a breathtaking mountainous region spanned by a number of biodiverse and important national parks, and the conditions here, particularly the fertile volcanic soil, are amazing for high quality coffee.

The Cocafelol co-op continually works to assist its smallholder coffee farmers to improve the quality and variety of coffee produced, and has invested a great deal into organic production.

Not for Aeropress

Having watched the YouTube channel for a while I ordered a bag to try, ground for Aeropress. Unfortunately, the coffee is not great. Whether thats due to the grind size not being quite right or a poor batch.

I usually use the standard Aeropress method and top off with water for a black coffee. The result was sour and vegetal, suggesting under-extraction. I've switched to using the inverted method for this coffee and with a long steep (tried from 2 up to 5 mins) I can get a drinkable cup.

Perhaps I should have stuck with beans and then I'd be able to grind courser, but have had good luck with pre-ground from other suppliers.

Not one I'll be re-ordering.

Excellent Decaf !

Slightly darker roast than my usual tried and tested decaf from a local roaster but very pleased with it. Tried as whole bean, very quickly dialled in and made great espresso with a rich, intense flavour. As good a decaf for straight espresso as I’ve ever found, made great lattes too. Also bought a bag of pre-ground for use in a Moka Pot whilst travelling which gave excellent results too. No hesitation in recommending, it will become a regular purchase.

Best Decaf

Normally, when drinking decaf coffee, the result is a compromise on taste when compared with caffeinated options. This decaf is the best I have found. It has now become the coffee of choice in our house. No caffeine and no compromise!

Can’t tell its decaf !

One of the best (possibly the best !) decafs I’ve tried. Strong and smooth its a far cry from the wish washy offerings of others. Will be buying again.
