Decaf please...(wahhhh!) [moved from Not About Food board]

  • 8

I LOVE coffee, but my nerves can't handle the caffeine anymore (sigh). I refuse to give up on coffee though, and have switched to decaf.

I use my French press, freshly grind my beans every morning, but most of the places I go to buy beans only offer one kind of decaf option. AND who says just because I want decaf I want it to be "light". I want rich, bold, sultry yummy beans people. Any suggestions on where to buy them online? Organic / fair trade would be cool too...

  1. try counter culture or blue bottle, both excellent

    1. I really like La Semeuse - vacuum packed, though also available in NYC as loose beans. Very smooth taste.

      1. I think Peets does the best decaf. And there are choices. My favorite is the Decaf Sumatra.
        You can order online if there isn't one near you.

        I found that Dunkin' Donuts decaf is worthless.

        1. If you have a Trader Joe's around I find both the decaf French Roast and the decaf Italian roast to be quite drinkable.

              Graffeo is fantastic coffee! First had it at Zuni cafe.... and always pick some up when we're in SF. I hadn't thought about it in quite some time...might have to order some now!
