Want to hear a nice story? Decaf sugar cane processed.

Setting the story straight..

Decaf coffee tends to get a bad rap; we've all seen the decaf slamming memes and jokes, however, let’s set the story straight. 

At Coffee Gems we continue to only roast and serve the very best coffee of the highest quality, always supporting the farming industry and this doesn’t stop at our decaf.

So if you’re looking to cut down your caffeine but still fancy the delicious taste of artisan speciality coffee, our Don Joaco decaf is the answer. 

It’s our single origin organic decaf that’s sweet and complex beyond all expectations for a decaffeinated coffee. Dried fruit and creamy chocolate flavours create an unbelievable caffeine-free experience.

We begin with meticulously sourced beans, choosing only those whose flavours and profiles can stand up to decaffeination. 

The beans from Huila Colombia, are treated under the chemical free process of sugar cane that removes caffeine, but retains completely its flavour integrity. Not only this, by using this method at origin, we’re further supporting the people at the heart of the coffee farming industry.

So we firmly believe our decaf is something quite special

  • cupped specifically for their quality 
  • sourced by single-origin
  • and naturally processed by using a sugar cane component (ethyl acetate)
  • Leaving you with a delicious decaf coffee which contains a maximum of 0.01–0.03% caffeine.

And for our adored coffee geeks out there, the process works by soaking green coffee in a solution of e.a., which bonds to the salts of chlorogenic acid in the coffee and allows for the removal of caffeine. The coffee is removed from the solvent and steamed at low pressure to remove the e.a. compounds, and the finished product retains its flavour integrity but contains almost no caffeine at all.

Glad we had that chat and helped rectify an old misconception ;-)
