  • Milk Chocolate, molasses, walnut, spices, earthy, citrus
  • Decaf can be tricky to roast due to it’s darker than normal appearance. The humidity of this coffee is not as dry as most Swiss Water Decafs and the coffee roasts a bit more like conventional coffees. This honey processed lot shows a lot of character on the cupping table and can be enjoyed from light to medium to dark roasts, depending on preference! A light roast will have much more acidity than typical decafs.

About the coffee:

A collective of small producers in the Marcala region of Honduras. Yellow and red catuai varieties are pulped and dried in their mucilage as a honey. The coffee is then shipped to   Descamex in Mexico where the caffeine is removed with pure water from Pico de Orizaba using a water saturation process that removes caffeine without the use of chemicals.
