Same taste, without the caffeine!
The secret behind the retention of original taste even when 98% of the caffeine has been removed:
Conventionally made decaffeinated coffees do not taste the same as the ones that have caffeine because the components within the coffee beans that make the coffee taste delicious are lost during the decaffeination process of the coffee. However, Sapporo Coffee-Kan’s original Caffeine-off blend has been made using a new method that has been developed in Germany, called the “Liquid Dicarboxylic acid Extraction Method". In this method, a combination of low pressure and temperature is applied over a prolonged period to remove 93%~98% of caffeinating components from the coffee beans, while preserving the flavor, taste, and aromatic components of the coffee beans. These coffee beans, that have retained their inherent taste and flavor are carefully roasted using our original roasting method – CSR roasting (Charcoal Straight Roasting), a roasting technique that minimizes oxidation; these special processes result in a cup of coffee that has almost no caffeine but as delicious as the original one.
Since no other decaf coffee can match the flavor, many high-end restaurants offer this exact coffee with their evening dessert menu.
We hope that this coffee blend presents a way to have a true specialty coffee experience for coffee lovers who are not so good with caffeine, pregnant ladies, mothers who are breastfeeding, and anyone who has been advised to lower their caffeine intake.
This coffee is highly recommendable for anyone who:
- Is easily affected by caffeine and is not able to sleep at night after coffee consumption
- Is pregnant or is breastfeeding and has been advised by the doctor to lower the caffeine intake
- Is simply looking for a delicious decaffeinated coffee made by a coffee specialty store
We use two layers of the package, the first layer is not vacuumed, and the second layer is odor-proof so that no odor will be transferred to any other products (i.e., tea) in the shipment.
