Drift Away- Decaf Espresso
Enjoy your cup of coffee any time of the day with our decaf espresso blend. Drift Away is everything that you need out of a cup of coffee except the caffeine.
All of the beans for this blend are decaffeinated through the Swiss Water Process, which is a way of removing the caffeine oils in the green bean coffee through a series of extractions and filters. When the bag of green coffee gets to our shop, it is perfectly delicious minus the caffeine.
A shot of this espresso will be full of dark chocolate flavour with a subtle sweetness of plum and apricot.
How do you craft a coffee that is both good for espresso and also delicious as a drip coffee? Any coffee can be used with any coffee making method, french press, slow pour, drip or espresso. What makes them different is how easy is the coffee available to dilute and become part of the liquid brew. It is all in how the roaster treats the green beans. w
I charge this coffee a medium low temperature, and pro-long the drying time. After this I pushed the roast quite hard to caramelize the sugar, catching it right where it is at peak sweetness, then I slow the roast to lengthen the development cycle, archiving the sweetness in the cup of drip and the complexity in a shot of espresso.
This is a great coffee to try to substitute any time that you are looking to cut back on the caffeine. Just because it we call it an espresso blend does not mean that it needs to stop there, try experimenting with it on your home drip, French Press, or pourover.
