Ethiopia Royal Select Water Process Guji Decaf

Chosen by our importer based on cup profile, physical preparation, and potential to express excellently once decaffeinated, this Ethiopian Guji offers a wonderfully complex cup with notes of caramel and graham cracker on the front end, followed by apricot jam and a blackberry acidity upon cooling.

Royal’s Select Water Processing is a chemical-free decaffeination method in which the green coffee is pre-soaked in water before being introduced to a solution of concentrated coffee solubles that draw out the caffeine without leaving an undesirable bitterness that many other decaffeination processes do.
