Any suggestions for good tasting decaf coffee brands?

Asked by Carly (4545 points ) March 12th, 2014

I know what most of you are gonna say: there is no such thing. I wish I could drink regular coffee, but the caffeine effects me way too much. I still love the flavor of regular coffee though, so if you have any suggestions on decaf blends that taste just as good, please let me know! :)

For starters, you could research the various processes for decaffeinating. That would definitely affect the taste. Try calling the various manufacturers to get started. I’m also guessing that a good decaffeinated organic coffee will taste different than conventionally grown decaff.

Gevalia, the subscription order coffee company has some simply amazing decaf! I see that they now have coffee available in some stores so I’d recommend that. I used to drink leaded part of the time and unleaded part of the time and I could hardly tell a difference.

Aside from Trader Joe’s, I have yet to find a coffee that has a brand and tastes good. Same with pre-ground; grinding your own is easy and always better. There are plenty of good whole-bean decafs available here in Seattle, but you really just have to experiment. Nice thing about whole-bean is that you can usually get just enough for 1 pot and not be stuck with a whole can of something you’ll never drink again.

Blue Bottle’s Decaf Noir is pricey but delicious.

And while the Blue Bottle is for special occasions, for daily consumption try Peet’s Major Dickason’s Decaf.

I really like Starbucks dark roasts. At their store, you can get Decaf Sumatra. In the grocery store, you can get Decaf Cafe Verona, which is very good. I also like Peet’s Major Dickinson’s Decaf.
