Decaf Mexico Veracruz - 12 oz.
Tasting notes: Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, Citrus Acidity
We are always on the quest to find the best decaf coffees for our decaf drinker! This coffee, grown by members of the Union Regional de Pequeños de Cafe, Agropecuaria y Forestal De La Zona de Huatusco in Veracruz, Mexico, is no exception.
This coffee stands out for its vanilla sweetness, intense milk chocolate foundation and pleasant hint of citrus acidity. While it is a versatile coffee, consider favoring either a flat-bottom dripper like the Kalita Wave or a full immersion brewer like the Aeropress to draw out the sweeter, richer tones. At the roastery, we also love it on espresso!
Is this the best decaf you've ever tasted? We'll let you be the judge.
Curious about the Mountain Water Process (MWP) for decaffeination? In this process, coffees are processed in a facility in Mexico called Descamex. In order to remove the caffeine, green coffee is soaked in a water solution, which removes both the caffeine as well as other solubles in the coffee (flavor compounds, for instance). The water is removed from the seeds and run through a special filter that captures caffeine molecules and allows them to be strained from the solution. The solution—now containing flavor compounds but no caffeine—is then reintroduced to the green coffee seeds, which reabsorb the soluble materials. The coffee is then dried once more, and prepared for reexport.
