Decaf Royal Select Water Colombia

The Coffee
Chosen from the very best Colombia has to offer. Royal Select Water Decaf coffee is sourced from lots that our friends from the Royal team have selected based on cupping evaluations. A surprisingly rich cup of coffee with deep molasses flavor, bakers chocolate, and hints of vanilla & white pepper.

The Story
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 coffee’s particular flavor. We have not seen the coffee selections chosen for a decaf as fine as what Royal has to offer on such a consistently great basis.

The Roast
At the hands of a small batch, craft coffee roaster, decaf coffee has all the potential to be a great tasting cup. Roasting a decaf coffee is particularly challenging. After the coffee is soaked in water, the cellular structure of the coffee changes. These changes affect the coffee in the roaster and how it takes on heat. Without strict care, the coffee roast profile can accelerate quickly into the stratosphere. With attention to the roast profile of the selected coffee, and giving the coffee the patience to develop in the roast, the origin and character of even a decaffeinated coffee can be celebrated. Unique qualities and tasting notes are possible, in a decaf!
