Decaf Eye of the Tiger is a seasonally evolving espresso blend that features in-season coffees. This version is built around a vibrant and complex coffee that Equator has been purchasing for many years, Kenya Lenana. When we heard Swiss Water would be doing a limited decaffeination run of this Equator favorite, we couldn’t wait to get it on our cupping table. After realizing how much of its original character this coffee retained through the decaffeination process, we knew it would be the perfect foundation for this dynamic espresso.
For balance and body, we included a coffee from Colombia that complements the Lenana lot beautifully. Grown by smallholder farmers in the Popayán growing region of western Colombia, this coffee adds complexity and depth to the espresso, as well as a molasses-like sweetness. We like it so much that we have featured it as a single-origin offering in the past! Together these coffees create a delicious espresso that pairs well with milk yet can stand on its own.
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.
