While many of us particularly enjoy coffee’s rejuvenate nature, we always felt that putting flavor first would be the best way of showing the unique complexity that coffee can offer--caffeinated or not. The current iteration of our decaf blend features a marriage of beans from Colombia and Brazil, both of which have undergone the one-and-only Swiss Water® process that removes caffeine, but retains flavor integrity. You can expect a clear dessert-like mouthfeel, complete with candied almond and a chocolatey background that stands well on its own, but also doesn’t hate being served with our milk drink offerings. Read this description out loud five times a day and all decaf stigmas will disappear for good.

Without caffeine, coffee may not exist today as we know it. Caffeine evolved in plants like coffee, tea and cocoa over the course of millions of years to resist pests (to whom, caffeine is toxic), and we're ever thankful that it did.
That said, our green coffee buyers don't travel 4 months of each year to scope out the world's best caffeine sources, but the world's tastiest coffees. It is therefore in the interest of our coffee's carefully-sourced flavor profiles that we've chosen to decaffeinate our Vancouver decaf using the Swiss Water Process®. Carried out shortly outside beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia; coffees undergo processing using water to remove caffeine without removing flavor.
Year-in, year-out, Vancouver Decaf seeks to deliver a dessert-like complexity made possible by a delicate balance of Brazilian and Columbian coffees.
Just wanted to say that I'm absolutely loving my Verve decaf coffee. The bloom and taste are so good, I'm just blown away. Will definitely be buying again and highly recommend.
I appreciate that this local roaster carries a decaf. Decaf never seems to meet the complexity and options of regular coffee, but this one isn't overly dark, verging on burnt like some other brands, so the beans' flavor makes it through. I've bought this variety many times before but first time having it shipped. We received the bean just two days after they were roasted. (Caveat, we only a few hours away from Santa Cruz so probably helped)
Delicious Decaf, Quick Delivery
The Swiss water process makes a difference! This blend is delicious - chocolatey, nutty and warming - and without the caffeine jitters! I'll be ordering it again! And delivery was quick.
I wake up every morning looking forward to a great cup of Verve coffee! You can't say that about most decaf.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
