Absolutely! Kona Coffee

Honalo Farm Absolute Decaf 8-oz.


Absolute Decaf – This our finest single-estate, 100% Kona Private Reserve coffee that has almost all of the original caffeine removed. For decaffeination we are using supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2), a safe food-grade extraction method, in our modern processing facility. It is widely known that decaf coffee possesses a much less pronounced flavor relative to regular coffee. Indeed, decaf coffees generally have a decidedly negative reputation. However, there are many people who a forced to avoid caffeine intake for medical or other reasons. Our Absolute Decaf is sufficiently flavorful to satisfy the palate of discerning coffee drinkers. This decaf coffee is supplied as a medium-dark roast for optimal flavor development and ground (not whole bean). It offers a smooth, complex, refined flavor, showing a wonderful aroma, gentle sweetness, low acidity, exceptional smoothness, and an extended finish. The flavor experience may vary according to the brewing method and conditions used.

The flavor characteristics of a particular coffee will not only depend on the single-origin source (terroir), but also on the level of roasting, from medium (~410 °F, near end of first crack) to dark (~445 °F, middle of second crack). Additionally, the hot beverage will vary markedly depending on the brewing method and conditions used. Unlike wine or beer, for example, one does not just open a bottle and find the beverage basically as intended by the producer. Hot coffee requires a considerable degree of end-user intervention and brewing skill. Another important factor is personal taste preference, which can have a major influence. As such, it is not possible to make specific claims about a product's taste without considering the many parameters upon which the taste will depend.

Our regular Private Reserve 100% Kona coffee contains, on average, 1.5 g of caffeine per 100 g of roasted coffee, according to standard analyses. This Absolute Decaf coffee contains less caffeine per 100 g of roasted coffee than do commercially available decaf coffees that we tested. Our decaf coffee is at least 99.9% caffeine-free (by weight).
