Italian Roast - DECAF
Italian roasts are famously the darkest of roasts. Its viscous texture ignites a boldness that is almost charred with a kiss of sweetness for a smooth pick-me-up.

Our coffees have been roasted to perfection according to Master Roaster and Founder Mike Sheldrake's 46 years in the craft.

All of our decafs are processed by the Indirect Contact method. The beans are soaked in hot water, which extracts the caffeine and coffee oils. The beans are then removed from the water. A decaffeinating agent is added to the water. The caffeine precipitates out of solution and is removed. The remainder of the decaffeinating agent evaporates out of the water. The coffee beans are reintroduced to the water where they reabsorb their oils. The coffee is then dried and ready for roasting.
February's Coffee of the Month is La Minita, a delightful medium roast from the beautiful farm in Tarrazu, Costa Rica.
"Hacienda La Minita was founded on the principle that coffee is much more than a commodity and should be enjoyed as luxuriously as an exquisite glass of wine or a gourmet meal."
