Description from Roaster:
The long neglected ugly duckling of the specialty coffee world, decaffeinated coffee options are often a poor substitute for the real thing. The Firefly Project is all about changing the pre-conceived notions about decaf.
We began by sourcing an exceptional, single origin coffee from a progressive, Rainforest Alliance certified producer group in South America. We selected a coffee with the character to maintain its exceptional taste and aroma through the decaffeination process.
In order to reach our goal of creating a sustainable decaffeinated coffee that doesn't compromise taste, we selected the patented Swiss Water process to remove the caffeine without the use of chemicals. The result is a rich, aromatic coffee that we are proud to offer exclusively to our distinguished clients.
We roast Firefly to a medium level to accentuate its buttery body and caramelized sugar flavors. With its dark chocolate notes and clean finish, this decaffeinated coffee is ideal for traditional drip and espresso brewing.
