Decaffeinated coffee beans

Don’t feel bad, people are keeping your thread up at the top of the lists for you :slight_smile: Maybe someone will eventually come along who knows something! I tried to call my usual place to ask today but they didn’t pick up the phone.

can i ask, after roasting coffee beans, how long can it be kept fresh from?
i feel like ordering some coffee beans from s. america but the shipping time takes 1 week plus.

wait, so what y’all are saying is decaffeinated Coca-Cola tastes exactly like normal Coca-Cola?

I do remember seeing decaf beans at Mojo Cafe in Taichung a while back. Maybe some indie coffee shops in Taipei sell them too. Mojo might also ship to Taipei.

I can’t see any decaffeinated coffee beans the websites of Starbucks or Mr. Brown or Barista, but my Chinese sucks, so I may be missing something:

Actually, decaf process is quite complex. In the old country, they sent the grains to Germany as we did not have the machinery.

Expensive decaffeinated stuff on the internet:

probably a different career for a change, you’re too good at decaffeinating already you’re actually getting good at non-sequiturs. Maybe be good at selling real estate in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

They can add coffee flavor!

Some coffees get better with ‘aging’, after roasting they need a few weeks to get better. Modern packaging is really good in keeping stuff ‘fresh’.

Wellcome used to have ‘Melitta’ decaf, a German brand.

With a charm offensive like that, you probably really do need a cup of coffee!

the world needs more heroes like quandary.

Google’s fault! Or Bing?

I looked around in a Starbucks tonight - didn’t see any decaffeinated beans, but did see decaffeinated instant coffee. I’ve heard their instant coffee is a lot better than you’d expect - which still leaves plenty of room for being bad.

Ok. I have seen decaff at Carrefour. It’s ground, and it’s called “Le Grande Classique” … it’s not particularly expensive. It’s not available in all stores. But Tienmu branches sometimes stock it.

Generally, the only places that I have seen decaff beans are Costco House Blend (Decaff) and Starbucks. Possibly Starbucks Via, too.

I would also suggest the City Supers in Taipei/KHH/Taichung for the occasional decaff coffee from Illy or Lavazza.

Otherwise, the market for decaff is practically non-existent here. I suggest you import your own supply from Amazon.com.
