Decaf Eye of the Tiger Espresso
Decaf Eye of the Tiger is a seasonally evolving espresso blend that features in-season coffees. This version is built around a sweet and spicy coffee from Moredocofe, a pair of farms and washing station located in Ethiopia’s renowned Sidamo region. We were shocked at how much of this coffee’s flavor and acidity was retained through the decaffeination process. Flavors of citrus fruits and warm spices serve as a perfect foundation for this delicious decaffeinated espresso blend.
For balance and body, we included a coffee from Colombia that complements the fruity and spicy Moredocofe beautifully. Grown by smallholder farmers in the Popayán growing region of western Colombia, this coffee adds complexity and depth to the espresso. We like it so much that we have featured it as a single-origin offering in the past!
We originally developed this seasonal decaffeinated espresso for our cafes, where we continue to serve it in all seven Bay Area locations. We think of it as a delicious espresso that just happens to be decaffeinated. All components are decaffeinated using the water processed method.
