Decaf Coffee Real Coffee

Have you ever had a delicious cup of decaf coffee? If the answer is no, then you haven't tried Café Britt's famous decaf house blend. This specially crafted Costa Rican blend is a mix of the hard, acidic beans of the Central Valley and the dense, full-bodied beans of the Western Valley. Together, these beans create a blend perfectly suited for decaffeination.

No matter your experience with other decafs, you're sure to love ours at Café Britt. The beans for our decaffeinated blend is grown locally and roasted by the world’s top experts, preserving all the delicious flavors Costa Rican coffee has to offer.

Whether it's a pregnancy, drug interaction, sensitivity to caffeine, or just the desire for an evening coffee before heading to bed, we know that there are many reasons that our customers choose to give up or reduce their caffeine consumption. The good news is that you can still enjoy the delicious Café Britt coffee that you love, with our decaf blend that removes 99% of caffeine.

We use a custom water method to gently remove the caffeine from our beans, but we also take extra care to keep the beans' flavor intact. To do so, our technicians soak the coffee beans in water and then move them to a separate water tank to extract as much of the caffeine as possible. The end result is then enhanced by returning the beans to the original water tank so they can soak up all the oils and flavors.


Our Decaf blend is robust and flavorful, unlike any decaf you've had before. The dark roast used to coax the intense flavors out of the decaffeinated beans leads to a mild blend with just a hint of acidity. The unique aroma of seeds and dry leaves is complemented by the flavor notes of honey and clove. Café Britt Decaf is the perfect drink for a refreshing morning, a quiet evening, or anytime in between.
