Absolutely! Kona Coffee

Honalo Farm Absolute Decaf 16-oz.


Absolute Decaf – This our finest single-estate, 100% Kona Private Reserve coffee with almost all of the original caffeine removed. Analysis consistently indicates that it is at least 99.9% caffeine-free. For decaffeination we use supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) to extract the caffeine from green beans in our modern processing facility, while retaining amazing flavor in the roasted coffee product. (Note: We are using a safe, food-grade extraction method.) Through much experimentation, we were able to develop a proprietary process that consistently provides virtually complete caffeine removal while retaining a notable flavor!

Normally, this product ships as ground coffee, rather than whole bean, which can be supplied on special request.

Coffee drinkers, far and wide, know that decaf coffee has a poor reputation because it has a less pronounced, less satisfying, flavor relative to regular coffee. Indeed, most decaf coffees are rather insipid. Our Absolute Decaf is exquisitely flavorful such that it will satisfy the palate of the most discerning coffee drinkers. This coffee is supplied as a medium-dark roast for optimal flavor development and in ground form (not as whole bean). It offers a smooth, complex, refined flavor, with a wonderful aroma, gentle sweetness, low acidity, and exceptional smoothness. Absolute Decaf is an excellent choice for many people who must avoid caffeine intake for medical or other reasons.

Here's an interesting anecdote. My wife brewed a pour-over pot of coffee for me and mistakenly used our Absolute Decaf instead of our regular Private Reserve. It was a stellar, impeccably balanced cup that I rated 98 points, a rare score indeed! The next morning she informed me that the amazing brew from the day before was actually our Absolute Decaf ... I was blown away! That experience was heck of a blind tasting and proved what we always thought about the taste quality of our Absolute Decaf. We believe that the taste of this decaf is absolutely unparalleled on Earth!

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