Tasting Notes:


Once again the people at Swiss Water have outdone themselves.  They continue to take some of the top coffees and turn them into a decaf coffee like nothing else.  I honestly don't understand how they can make decaf taste this good.  I'm not really an evening coffee drinker, so I only have this coffee about once a week, but when I do, I don't really realize that it's decaf.

This coffee is a nice rich coffee.  It has the typical creamy smoothness of a perfect Colombian coffee. It is rich, chocolatey and delicious.

About Swiss Water Process:


This bean goes through a Swiss Water Process which uses water from the pristine environment of the coast mountains of British Columbia, Canada to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free, while maintaining the bean's distinctive origin and flavor characteristics. It's decaffeinated coffee without compromise. Coffee decaffeinated using the environment-friendly Swiss Water Process undergoes regular caffeine level audits to ensure compliance to 99.9% caffeine-free.


In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 4 different coffee grind levels.  Listed below with descriptions.

Whole Bean: Unground coffee for a home grinder.

Coarse: Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse
   Recommended for Chemex Brewer, French Press, Cold Brew

Medium: Slightly coarser than table salt
   Recommended for Flat bottom brewers, Kalitta, and Cloth filters

Fine:  Slightly finer than table salt
   Recommended for V60 pour overs, Typical cone filter coffee pots, Aeropress.

Extra Fine: Like powdered sugar
   Recommended for Espresso or Moka pot.

If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.


Roasting Schedule:

We roast and ship all of our coffees daily.  Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal.  We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it.  We then ship it that day.

We use USPS priority shipping and we've found that they are more consistent on some days vs. others.  We always use priority shipping which is supposed to be 2 / 3 day shipping to most of the country, but that doesn't always happen, in fact, our analytics show that about 10% of the time it takes 4 days or longer to receive the coffee. 

We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.

Also, if you order before 6am AZ on most days, we'll be able to include it in that day's production, but depending on volume it may go out the next day.  We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments.
