Without caffeine, coffee may not exist today as we know it. Caffeine evolved in plants like coffee, tea and cocoa over the course of millions of years to resist pests (to whom, caffeine is toxic), and we're ever thankful that it did.
That said, our green coffee buyers don't travel 4 months of each year to scope out the world's best caffeine sources, but the world's tastiest coffees. It is therefore in the interest of our coffee's carefully-sourced flavor profiles that we've chosen to decaffeinate our Vancouver decaf using the Swiss Water Process®. Carried out shortly outside beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia; coffees undergo processing using water to remove caffeine without removing flavor.
Year-in, year-out, Vancouver Decaf seeks to deliver a dessert-like complexity made possible by a delicate balance of Brazilian and Columbian coffees.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
