Ethiopia Debub Merab SWP Decaf

Ethiopia Debub Merab SWP Decaf


This Ethiopian decaf is a star! Part of it has to do with the coffee itself; this caffeinated cup would stand its own as one of our favorites. But if you have a beautiful cup and you subject it to harsh chemical decaf processes, then you stand to lose the volatile compounds that made it a delicious coffee to begin with. We navigate this part of the equation by only selecting high quality water-processed decaf coffee. This Ethiopian Decaf is processed at the Swiss Water Decaf plant in Canada, where they employ a patented water processing method that uses no harsh chemicals to effectively remove the caffeine. The process is gentle, and leaves much of the flavor and aroma intact.

The Debub Merab has earth-toned cocoa smells. The cup has grainy sweetness and fruity notes, like natural dried apricot and raisin.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
