Thoughts About Decaf

Do you drink coffee for the caffeine? Or do you sip coffee for the aroma, taste and experience?

Decaf coffee.

I’ve been thinking about this lately. Before you roll your eyes and shutter in disgust, hear me out.

Whether you drink regular or decaf, one thing we can all agree on is that we love coffee.

Swiss Water says it best in their Guide to Great Decaf,  “It may be hard for people to believe, but decaf can be great. And, it should be.

Because coffee is to be enjoyed all the time. And who wants a mediocre cup of coffee? A coffee lover chooses decaf because they need to reduce or eliminate the caffeine. But when they order a cup of decaf, they want the same ritual that anyone else experiences. “

Who would bother drinking Decaf? There are 3 Main reasons:

  1. Anyone who wants to drink coffee in the evenings and still be able to sleep
  2. Health reasons that lead to reduce or eliminate caffeine intake
  3. Mothers who are pregnant or nursing and doesn’t want to their child to have caffeine

I have personally begun to drink Decaf because of medical reasons. Although I refuse to cut out regular coffee all together, I have cut back a lot. If I want more coffee through-out the day, I turn to Decaf.

Decaf has gotten a bad rep. This is understandable, to an extent. I do realize that Decaf may not be as good as the best regular coffee, but great Decaf coffee DOES exist. And I’m here to help you find it.

Consumers who can’t enjoy regular coffee need love too. My Mission is to help you find better Decaf. So I’ll be working on a series of posts related to this topic. And I’ll also review decaf coffees.

Keep a look out for the next posts.
