Our Review: "This coffee coffee is curated from lots that the Royal team has selected based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated. During the water process, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The hydrated green coffee is then introduced to a unique solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine while minimizing the loss of flavor compounds. Once the caffeine has been removed the green coffee is re-dried and re-bagged for transport, and the extract solution is filtered of its caffeine and recycled to be used again." - Royal Coffee
We've worked with the Royal Coffee team for many years now and they've never let us down with their "Royal Select" decaf offerings. Consistently well sourced and processed, this coffee is no exception. It's easy roasting for a decaf, but keep in mind that like most water processed decafs, it tends to take off fast near first crack so be prepared! It's mildly acidic like a sweet Valencia orange with a gentle chocolatey sweetness and full, creamy body making it the perfect "everyday decaf". This versatility makes it one of our favorite blenders whether you're making a decaf house or espresso blend or going for that half-caff mid-afternoon cup.
