Why we love this coffee

San Seb all day long 🤔 What a lovely thought. If we could dream up the perfect decaf this would be it!! San Sebastian is consistently one of our favourite coffees year after year and has been since all the way back in 2013. But, never once did we stop and think, could we just get it decaffeinated? Well, now we have, and honestly, there’s really nothing better. It's gotta be one of the best Decafs we’ve ever had. It’s got all the lovely aspects of San Sebastian without any of the caffeine and great as both a filter or espresso!!

Most members are second, third or fourth-generation coffee growers approaching today's coffee growing and production with a fresh and innovative attitude. This specific lot has been naturally decaffeinated at the origin using the E.A method.

Smooth

Finding a non bitter, smooth decaf bean has not been easy. Detour decaf is just that smooth and totally enjoyable.

Outstanding Quality

I loved the rich and smooth flavours of this blend!

It was perfectly crafted for fine quality espresso and blended perfectly with any milk iced or hot!The best part is that it’s decaffeinated and you truly cannot tell a difference at all!

Overall I am very impressed and will be purchasing again!

Awesome decaf!

I have been drinking coffee all my adult life and have had the priviledge to have travelled to many coffee growing countries and enjoyed some of their finest. More recently I have tended to enjoy a blonde or medium roast. I switched to decaf about 6 months ago and have been looking for a palatable decaf ever since. I have now found it - Detour's Columbia Huila decaf is awesome! In fact I prefer it to many high-test coffees I used to like. I'm not good at describing the tasting notes, but suffice it to say this coffee nails it.
