Decaf gets kind of a bad rap. We want to change that. The decaf we’ve selected is processed using the E.A. method, a natural process which maintains the coffee's integrity during decaffeination. The E.A. process includes soaking the unroasted coffee in a solution of water and Ethyl Acetate (E.A.) to bond to the caffeine, extracting it out of the bean. Once all the caffeine is out, the bean is steamed to remove residual E.A., and voila! You’ve got decaf, baby! Once it gets to us, it’s roasted to bring out the best, and to suit a great many taste buds. We’ve created a coffee with classic flavors, but with a deep and surprising complexity.
Where it's from
The Decaf on our menu comes from Colombia, in the Cauca region and is grown by various smallholder farms. These coffees are assessed and selected specifically for decaffeination by our importing partner, Cafe Imports, before the coffee even goes to export. This step allows the conservation of quality throughout the process, and is an important part of the “intentional and responsible” sourcing methods of their offerings.
Excellent - but less excellent than our favorite
Our favorite (and by a large margin) is your Blue boy coffee - which is actually my favorite coffee of all time (and semi addictive) !!
We love This decaf whole bean for pulling shots at home! It’s delicious!

Perfect! No complaints!!
I have never liked the taste of decaf coffee, but I thought I would give Methodical’s whole bean decaf a try. It is wonderful! Now, I can enjoy a cup of coffee in the evenings without the caffeine worry!
Fantastic decaf, excellent service as always!
By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.
We roast to order and ship Monday-Thursday. Orders are usually fulfilled the production day after they are placed (for example, orders placed on Monday will ship on Tuesday). Orders placed Thursday-Sunday will be fulfilled and shipped on Monday.
Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.
If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
We roast our coffee and select our teas to express the life it lived and to honor the skilled people who cultivate it. We’re passionate about sourcing, creating, and discovering products to elevate everyday life while strengthening connections and community.
