    Origin Story

    El Pacayalito (Guatemala)
    Smallholder Farmers (Colombia)
    EXPOCACCER (Brazil)

    This iteration of Decaf Eye of the Tiger Espresso is built around a coffee from Guatemala produced on El Pacayalito, a farm located in San Miguel Pochuta, just south of the picturesque Lake Atitlán. We found a classic Guatemalan cup profile and creamy mouthfeel were retained through the decaffeination process, making this coffee a great foundation for the espresso blend.

    We then included a pair of coffees from two of the world's most distinguished producing countries. The first was grown by smallholder farmers in the Popayan region of western Colombia. This coffee helps to bring the characteristics of the blend's other components into balance by adding flavors of dried fruit and a graham cracker-like sweetness. We like it so much that we have featured it as a single-origin offering in the past! The other comes from the Minas Gerais region of Brazil, and is a blend of natural and pulped-natural lots. Its sweet and subtly nutty flavors add complexity and depth to the blend, and together these coffees create a delicious espresso that pairs well with milk yet can stand on its own.

    Why We Love This Coffee

    Decaf Eye of the Tiger is a seasonally evolving espresso blend that features in-season coffees. We originally developed this decaffeinated espresso blend for our cafes, where we continue to serve it daily in all locations throughout California. We simply think of this blend as a delicious espresso that just happens to be decaffeinated. All components are decaffeinated using the chemical-free water processed method.

    While there are many variables that contribute to dialing in espresso, here are the parameters that have been yielding the best results in our lab: 7:2.7 coffee to water ratio in 27 seconds.
