Decaf, Staff Picks
"The trading team at Royal cups a table of coffees twice per day, every day. We cup hundreds of coffees a month picking out the very best beans to pass to our customers. Although I’ve been doing this many years, there are definitely still moments when a coffee really impresses me and I have to take a moment to savor it. It is incredibly rare, though, that the standout coffee for me is decaffeinated, but we just cupped 45335 Ethiopia Guji 4 Natural Royal Select Water Decaf and it is fantastic. Sweet, berries, bergamot, jasmine, cream… doesn’t sound like a decaf does it? If you ever wanted to impress someone with a decaf, this is the coffee for you."

Background Details

Ethiopia Guji 4 Natural Royal Select Water Decaf is sourced from a lot that the Royal team has selected based on cupping evaluations. After selection, the green coffee is pre-soaked in water to expand the beans for caffeine extraction. The beans are then introduced to a solution concentrated with coffee solubles that extract the caffeine without extracting the coffees particular flavor.
