Honduras Marcala, Swiss Water Decaf (USDA Organic)
Caramel, Brown Sugar, Earthy Chocolate
The USDA certified organic Honduran Decaf is anything but your run-of-the-mill decaffeinated coffee. Steepfuze begins with Bourbon, Lempira, and Catuai varietals of Arabica coffee from the Cafe Organico Marcala which are decaffeinated using the totally solvent-free Swiss Water decaffeination method. The beans are carefully blended and roasted to a medium dark level to maintain the deep flavor characteristics of traditional medium roast coffees with a pleasant nuttiness and a long, smooth finish. Strong aromas pervade with notes of smoke and brown sugar. The flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, almond, and caramel dominate the cup with hints of honey underlying. With much more structure and complexity than most decafs, this coffee is sure not to disappoint!
Steepfuze's regular “full infusion,” with a 1:1 ratio of milligrams of CBD to grams of coffee – easy measuring!
-Begin with 1/2 oz. (2 heaping Tbsp) coffee per 8 oz. water (about a 1:16 ratio of coffee to water)
-Use water just off the boil – about 195°F – 205°F
-Choose the desired grind for your brewing method, and grind freshly before brewing (perhaps one of the most critical steps to brewing great coffee)
-Store in an airtight, opaque container, in a cool, dry place
**Steefuze doesn't recommend cold brews or using ultra-thick paper filters (we like stainless mesh filters!). Cold brews don’t extract oils from the grounds, and thick paper filters remove most of the oils from the cup. Cold brews and thick filters produce delicious cups of coffee, but ones without much of the CBD oil we’ve infused into the coffee beans.
But don’t fret! Steepfuze also loves pour-overs, so use stainless mesh filters with the Chemex. The thin paper AeroPress filters work well, but we also occasionally swap in a stainless disc to change it up.
And when the weather beckons, we brew the coffee hot and then chill it – getting the most of the oils! An espresso machine or french press (or the elusive Turkish and Bali-style methods if you’re feeling up to it) are some favorite ways to brew CBD infused coffees. When we brew for big events, we use stainless mesh baskets for drip or percolation.
