🤤 Decaf that doesn't taste like decaf
The Gigante Decaf is yet another brilliant representation of how Sugar Cane Decaf is capable of producing decaffeinated coffees that taste remarkably like their caffeinated counterparts. We're hooked. From this one, we get gentle notes of Plum and Melon in the body, finishing with a sweetness reminiscent of fireside S'mores.
Set your preconceived notions of what Decaf coffee tastes like, we'll be brewing this one at all hours of the day.

From Apex Coffee Imports:
The town of Gigante is located in the East-Central part of Huila at the convergence of several important features in the region. The municipality is intersected by the Magdelena River and it acts as a commercial centre for all trade in the area. It is known for cacao production at lower altitude farms and for producing world-class coffee at high altitudes. This particular lot was gathered from small farms throughout the municipality and blended based on moisture & water activity as well as flavour profile at our exporter's lab in Pitalito, Huila. The average farm size in this area is slightly larger than other areas of Colombia so picking is completed by labourers from other areas who travel and work at various farms in the area during harvest. This year, Apex is offering this blend as an EA decaf. The decaffeinated version has a very clean, sweet, and balanced profile, making it one of the best decafs we've tasted this year.
